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 26 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.

September Awareness

Recovery Month

National Recovery Month celebrates the millions of Americans who are in recovery from mental and substance use disorders, reminding us that treatment is effective and that people can and do recover.

Suicide Prevention

Be the oneBe the oneBe the oneBe the oneBe the oneBe the oneBe the one

The National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline know it is possible to reduce deaths from suicide like we have reduced heart disease fatalities and other leading causes of death. For every person who dies by suicide annually, there are another 280 people who have thought seriously about suicide who don’t kill themselves, and nearly 60 who have survived a suicide attempt.

#chalkaboutMH
On August 27, we shared a short presentation of the statistics related to suicide and resources available, and a family member impacted by a death by suicide shared their story. Trillium also would like to remind the public about Mental Health First Aid training so anyone can learn to recognize the warning signs of a potential suicide. Trillium staff then drew images [pictures attached] that encompass messages of hope along with the broad impact of suicide. We want to show that no matter the situation, there is always someone to listen and treatments available. 

Throughout the month of September, we will post on our social media using the hashtag #ChalkaboutMH. We welcome any community agency, school, organization, business, religious group, and more to join us in the conversation…all you need is a willingness to be involved and a piece of chalk. Trillium will share all posts with #ChalkaboutMH. We do suggest following any local ordinances regarding public artwork if participants are not the property owner, and be sure to use chalk supplies that are easily washed away.
