Monthly Awareness

 

Trillium Health Resources recognizes monthly awareness events sponsored by local or national organizations and agencies. By helping to publicize these events, we bring attention to these causes to help reduce stigma and share the need for behavioral health services to address them.

As a managed care organization, Trillium coordinates services for mental health, substance use, and intellectual and developmental disabilities in 25 counties in eastern North Carolina. In addition to contracted services, Trillium promotes initiatives as part of its reinvestment plan—one-time funds that Trillium can spend locally as a result of savings by managing Medicaid funding and services efficiently and locally.

Autism_awarenessNearly a quarter-century ago, the Autism Society launched a nationwide effort to promote autism awareness, inclusion and self-determination for all, and assure that each person with ASD is provided the opportunity to achieve the highest possible quality of life. This year we want to go beyond simply promoting autism awareness to encouraging friends and collaborators to become partners in movement toward acceptance and appreciation.
 

 

Alcohol_awarenessThe National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD) has designated April as Alcohol Awareness Month since 1987. Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) is one of the most significant public health issues in the United States.  An estimated 16.6 million Americans have AUD, and the NCADD found that last year only about 8% of that number sought treatment. Alcohol Awareness Month provides an important platform to share resources, educate our communities, and reduce the shame associated with AUD.

Coming Next Month...

 May Mental Health Awareness picture
When we talk about health, we can’t just focus on heart health, or liver health, or brain health, and not whole health. You have to see the whole person and make use of the tools and resources that benefit minds and bodies together. That's why this year, our May is Mental Health Month theme is Fitness #4Mind4Body.


 

Military appreciation
Congress designated May as National Military Appreciation Month in 1999 to ensure the nation was given the opportunity to publicly demonstrate their appreciation for the sacrifices and successes made by our service members -- past and present. 


 

Older American AwarenessEvery May, the Administration on Aging, part of the Administration for Community Living, leads our nation's observance of Older American's Month. The 2018 theme, Engage at Every Age, emphasizes that you are never too old (or young) to take part in activities that can enrich your physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
