Radiant Health set to host Mental Health Matters as part of Mental Health Awareness Month

Marion, IN – May 4, 2023 Radiant Health will host Mental Health Matters, as part of Mental Health Awareness Month, on May 17th from 5 pm to 8 pm at the Gardens of Matter Park. The event is Free and focused on the importance of offering youth activities designed to help them self-regulate and support mental wellness.

Mental Health Awareness Month was established in 1949 to increase awareness of the importance of mental health and wellness in Americans’ lives, to celebrate those living in recovery and the importance of how essential mental wellness is for a person’s overall health.

The event is a partnership with the United Way of Grant County.

“United Way of Grant County recognizes that mental health is foundational to overall health and well-being. Our partnership with Radiant Health for the Mental Health Matters event reflects our commitment to fostering an environment where mental health is understood, discussed, and prioritized. We believe that equipping our youth and their families with the tools to promote mental wellness is an investment in the resilience of our community,” said LeeAnna Smith, Executive Director, United Way of Grant County.

According to the CDC, in 2021, 42% of students reported feeling persistently sad or hopeless and nearly one-third experienced poor mental health. As well as, 1 in 5 students seriously considered attempting suicide and 1 in 10 attempted suicide.

Mental Health Matters is designed to offer youth, ages 5-18, opportunities to explore ways to develop healthy mental wellness habits and reduce the stigma around addressing mental health.

“Our children and youth need and deserve to be supported in all areas of health, including mental wellness. It is our mission to offer social, emotional, and mental health support, resources, and education to all within our community,” said Jenny Allbaugh, Manager of Community and School Based Service.  “Mental Health Matters achieves this mission,” she continued.

The evening event will feature several free activities including painting, therapy dogs, chair yoga, reading with Marion Public Library, Balloon Art with Aaron Messer, Imagination Library sign up, Silent Disco, jewelry making, Hot Dogs with the Marion Fire Department, and many more activities.

The event is being made possible by the generous support of the United Way of Grant County, TJR Equipment, Via Credit Union, The Chronicle Tribune, Hoosier AM/FM, Atlas Foundry, Bahr Brothers, Edward Jones- Bobby Browder and the Rotary Club of Grant County.

Hi there.
We're Radiant Health.

As of January 18, 2023, Grant Blackford Mental Health and Family Services Society, two organizations that merged in April 2022, rebranded under the unified name 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.
