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.
March is an opportunity to promote awareness of the people who live with developmental disabilities in our communities. Trillium works to create allies, end misconceptions, and encourage inclusion for people of all disabilities. In recognition of this month, Trillium will join organizations around the country to support the healthy emotional, physical, and social development of people with developmental disabilities. We will encourage participation in promoting and protecting the rights of these valuable members of our community.

Trillium recognizes the importance of Brain Awareness Week, a campaign to increase public understanding of the brain and its development. As a part of our Care Coordination service, we support individuals who deal with brain trauma due to mental health or substance use issues. Through our initiatives such as the North Carolina TBI Program, we hope to help provide our members with care that supports continual development of healthy brain functions.
