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 is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month—a time to share resources and stories in an effort to shed light on this highly sensitive and stigmatized topic.
Every September, SAMHSA sponsors Recovery Month to increase awareness and understanding of mental and substance use disorders and celebrate the people who recover.
The annual theme is:
Join the Voices for Recovery: Invest in Health, Home,
Purpose, and Community.
Now in its 29th year, Recovery Month highlights the achievements of individuals who have reclaimed their lives in long-term recovery and honors the treatment and recovery service providers who make recovery possible.
