Monthly Awareness

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. In addition to contracted services, Trillium promotes initiatives it supports through the Neighborhood Connections team and other departments.

May Mental Health Awareness picture

This year marks MHA's 70th year celebrating Mental Health Month!

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 we are expanding upon last year’s theme of #4Mind4Body.




May is Trauma Awareness
