Trillium Health Resources has already completed three learning sessions as the new mental provider for Halifax County.

Northern Regional Director Bland Baker presented an overview on the ground gained since Trillium became the county’s local management entity for mental health services on December 1.

Baker told Halifax County Commissioners Monday those learning sessions included providers, stakeholders and members.

Four former Cardinal Innovations employees have accepted job offers from Trillium.

Baker also said that Trillium has already begun participating in community collaboratives and has hired a system of care coordinator for Halifax County, a candidate who has 23 years experience with the county.

Trillium has participated in the last three Stepping Up meetings with the county, a program which seeks to reduce the number of people with mental illnesses in jail. It also continues to learn about the county’s program and has invited Integrated Family Services to be a part of Stepping Up as Baker said they will be a good fit for the program.

Before the realignment, Trillium had already contracted with a number of Halifax providers who served a number of Northampton County residents. “Trillium has received provider files from Cardinal and all contracts have been implemented so there will be no gaps in member services,” Baker said.

The company also accepted provider credentialing files from Cardinal, eliminating the need to redo them.

Sean Kenny will serve as the department of social services liaison for Trillium and has been introduced and given staff a presentation on the role and doing business with the company.

The company has had meetings with the sheriff’s office and Integrated Family Services to introduce Mobile Crisis Management and coordinated a meeting with Integrated Family Services and magistrates.

Contacts have been made with the three school systems in the county and Baker said the Roanoke Rapids Graded School District has expressed an interest in Trillium’s offer to support the school system for school-based therapy.

“I want to say to (Interim County Manager Dia) Denton and (Clerk to the board Andrea) Wiggins how much I appreciate their help and support,” Baker said. “That really guided me through the ins and outs of Halifax County. I look forward to working with Commissioner Carolyn Johnson.”
