I’ve just returned home from the Grant County YMCA after doing 45 minutes in the pool with one on my friends.  We get up at an hour that is usually reserved for emergency services, shift workers and bakers and take ourselves to the local pool to work out our aging joints—oh, and our mouths.  We talk and laugh and share advice as we stretch, walk and swim through our workout.

I’ve traditionally been a more solo exercise individual—until now.  I am having a blast meeting up with a friend that’s just crazy enough to get up before the sun and provide mutual support and accountability.  It’s not just good for my body, it’s good for my soul.

If you find that the lingering pandemic has hit you with holiday-time malaise, find a friend who is willing to show up with you and take that brisk walk, do a few laps in the pool, shoot hoops or meet you at a spin class.  Everyone’s idea of exercise is different so find what you enjoy and share the time with a friend.  You may just find, like I did, the power of a friend to transform what felt like a chore into a joy.

Leaning into friendship, during the holidays especially, can remove the feelings of isolation and stress many of us are feeling after two long pandemic years, knowing we are on the cusp of a third.  Good friends provide us with a safe space where we can be ourselves, find comfort and let go of the pressures and expectations of everyday life.  And adding exercise as one of the reasons to get together gives you the double whammy of improving both your physical and mental wellness.

As we wind down the year, let’s do it with the power of our friends alongside us.  Wishing you and yours an amazing holiday season and a Happy New Year!

Team of professionals at Radiant Health

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.
