“Will I be drafted?” This is the question that is ringing in the ears of parents with children of military draft age as Russia continues its war to occupy Ukraine.  Our young adults are feeling unsure about what this foreign aggression means for them.  This can add to feelings of anxiety already felt by our youth as they navigate political vitriol, hate speech, global warming, social media messaging and the traditional challenges of growing from children to adults.

So, what can WE do as parents and community members who want the best for our youth? 

  • Provide a safe place for youth to talk about their feelings regarding the world and growing up in it—no judgement. Let them get it all out and just listen.
  • Engage in activities that do not include social media—play cards or board games, participate in sporting activities that youth enjoy, support youth in their hobbies and extra-curricular activities.
  • Households are a wonderful place for youth to learn that disparate ideas can coexist in a loving and respectful way. When you and other family members disagree about a political idea or policy, be sure to keep the disagreement respectful, listen to all sides express themselves and provide a safe place for disagreement without punishment—this means no silent treatment or withholding of affection.
  • Pay attention to our youth and their behavior. If you notice signs such as withdrawing from activities they used to enjoy, not engaging with their friends, slipping grades or other concerning behaviors that are out of character, please contact Radiant Health to schedule an appointment with a professional counselor.

While we cannot solve the problems of the world that place pressure on our youth, we can provide safe secure nurturing relationships and environments that support their growth, exploration and healthy decision making.  And as we consistently support the healthy development of our young people, the world will naturally evolve to be more kind.  Youth are our future.  Let’s show them they matter.

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.
