My Surprise Christmas Gift is Only Half Full

I received an early, surprise Christmas present this year.

It’s half full.  I will not know for sure what it will look like until Dec. 31.

Here’s what happened.  One family wanted to honor their late father’s memory with an unusual gift.  So, they decided to give $10,000 as a Holiday Challenge Grant to support how Radiant Health serves 10,000 people each year.

No fanfare.  No press releases.  They just wanted to give and hope others would give knowing their gift would be doubled.  Two other families heard about the first family’s generosity.  So, one family gave another $10,000. Another family added $5,000.

So, now you know my Christmas gift.

We have $25,000 to help us raise a total of $50,000 or more by Dec. 31.  Along with other grants and resources we receive all year long, you will help us successfully meet the needs of the nearly 10,000 people we serve each year as we conclude 2015.  So far this year:

  • YOU have provided 2,884 safe nights of sleep to families seeking shelter
  • YOU have allowed us to touch many lives in the schools and improve understanding of healthy relationships by 75%
  • YOU have provided critical counseling services for those traumatized by abuse and they have consistently improved with treatment moving on to lead productive, healthy lives
  • YOU have enabled us to help thousands of children and families in 14 counties with our services
  • YOU have assisted in keeping more than 100 different families engaged in early childhood education and parent education in the home
  • YOU have championed children when it seemed no one would

We are so proud and thankful for what you have helped us to accomplish. Please help us finish the year strong by making your year-end gift to Radiant Health today … or at least no later than Dec. 31.

Remember whatever size gift you can share before Dec. 31, we can double it – up to $25,000.  So, you can give online immediately by clicking here.  Or mail us your gift or drop by with your check to 101 S. Washington St., Marion, IN 46952.  If you have questions, please call Marlene Minor at 765.662.9971, ext. 103.

I will write to you next month and let you know how we did in delivering help and hope to families throughout the 14 counties we serve – thanks to your assistance.

Hi there.
We're Radiant Health.

On January 19th, 2023 Grant Blackford Mental Health, Inc. and Family Service Society, Inc. merged to create a bigger, better, and brighter mental health organization called Radiant Health.

We’re excited for you to meet the new us, and to get a chance to help work together on the new you.

How we help.

When you’re in the middle of it, addiction can feel like a dead-end road. We know for certain that it isn’t. Just like any mental health challenge, addiction is an obstacle on our path. And, with some innovation and hardwork, we can work our way around it. On the other side of that obstacle is a bright future with healthy relationships, purpose-driven life, and a profound joy that’s been missing for all too long.

What do we mean?

Like so many things, mental health is passed down through families. Through behaviors, mirroring, and conditioning, we learn so much of what we know from those closest to us. Oftentimes that’s for the better, sometimes it’s not. At Radiant Health, we’re here to help ensure that your family makes purpose and joy as hereditary as any trait you might pass down to future generations. With a bit of hard word, together, we can make joy run in your family. 

What is Better?

Better ≠ perfect. Better means a path of continuous improvement; of evolution. When we focus on getting 1% better, 1% brighter every single day., we’re able to see the joy in the moment, while feeling the pride that comes with taking the reins over your life and working hard on yourself.  Here at Radiant, to focus on your future, we move towards it one achievable step at a time. 

What is Better Care?

When we talk about “brighter, better care” through our specialized services it boils down to 3 simple ideas. First, better care is safer care. Our facilities and staff are trained and equipped to offer safe, secure facilities during any stay. Second, better care is a respect for dignity. We believe in the dignity of every human being and we treat each person with the same level of respect. Finally, better care is the pursuit of purpose. Our treatment is designed with the firm belief that every person has purpose and, through it, finds joy.

What to Expect?

At Radiant Health you can expect a warmth and cheer that are rare in the mental health space. We believe firmly that the commitment to mental health is a commitment to finding purpose, but also discovering joy in the pursuit of it. Walking through our doors is a simple and transparent process. You’ll begin with an initial consultation with our expert staff, developing a blueprint, and taking that first step towards incremental improvement.
