A NEW DESTINATION FOR CHILD SERVICES
Trillium has embarked on a groundbreaking effort to redesign and right-size the child services system. We are committed to helping families and children—infants and toddlers to teens to youth transitioning to young adulthood--heal and achieve recovery from behavioral health issues.
- We want to be sure we are delivering the right services, in the right amount, at the right time to meet the needs of children and youth.
- We want to ensure treatment is delivered with fidelity and integrity.
- We want to increase the availability and the standardization of prevention services as early in the life of children as possible to reduce the potential of developing serious mental health or substance use conditions requiring high cost and long term treatment.
Trillium is investing resources to redesign and expand the available behavioral health services and providers who specialize in children’s services in Eastern North Carolina. This initiative, known as the 2020 Child Vision, will be implemented over a multi-year process with the goal of creating a supportive community that provides the protective environmental fabric for children and youth to thrive and live healthy lives.
In the first year, Trillium implemented one new evidence-based, home-visiting model for infants to 6 years old children and enhanced the reimbursement structure for two of our existing evidenced-based models used in our catchment:
Exploration of the use of Video Modeling began in year one. Testing of available software for this initiative is currently underway. For more information about Video Modeling, please contact Christie Edwards.
For year two, the primary focus of 2020 Child Vision has been to make sure current services for children in our service array are accessible throughout our catchment. We have enhanced the use of Child Parent Psychotherapy by being able to offer the Child First model for the 0 - 6 years old population. Child First uses CPP as its therapeutic intervention by the CPP rostered clinician and adds a Bachelor’s level Family Resource Partner to assist the family getting connected to the needed resources.
Additional programs and resources being considered for 2016-17 include: High Fidelity Wraparound, Comprehensive Health Assessment Tool (CHAT), Substance Abuse Treatment for youth 12 - 17years old, transitional services for youth aging out of foster care, Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) for the treatment of youth with Autism Spectrum Disorders, Youth/Peer Support services, and the opening of a new youth shelter in Onslow County.
