Trilogy’s In SHAPE Wellness Program

Posted by Shawna Flavell on Fri, Jul 31, 2015 @ 03:46 PM

Trilogy Behavioral Healthcare strives to break down the barriers that prevent people with mental illness from gaining access to quality health care and health information. These efforts have led to the creation of our award-winning Integrated Healthcare Clinic, our partnership with Heartland Health Centers, and the establishment of Illinois’ first Occupational Therapy Program in community-based mental health. Our Integrated Healthcare Program (IHC) ensures that our clients have access to an array of healthcare options so they can find the wellness and nutrition program that will help them reach their goals.

Trilogy: A Pioneer In Providing Integrated Healthcare

Posted by Shawna Flavell on Mon, Aug 25, 2014 @ 10:17 AM

In 2010, Trilogy partnered with Heartland Health Centers (HHC) and became one of 45 mental health organizations across the country to be awarded a competitive multimillion dollar, four year federal grant from the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) in support of expanding our Integrated Healthcare Program (IHC). As participants in SAMHSA’s Primary and Behavioral Healthcare Integration (PBHCI) program, Trilogy became a part of a nationwide collective of innovative behavioral healthcare organizations that are addressing barriers to quality primary healthcare for individuals with serious mental illness which normally exist in the traditional, parallel treatment methods employed across the United States. Since 2010, the number of PBHCI grantees has grown from 45 to 100.

Trilogy Beacon Drop-In Center Remodeling Begins!

Posted by Shawna Flavell on Fri, Jul 25, 2014 @ 10:11 AM

Since 2010, Trilogy has experienced substantial growth and numerous changes that have enhanced our ability to provide the most up-to-date behavioral health services to a historically underserved population. In 2010, Trilogy served 579 individuals living with serious mental illness. Today, we serve more than 1500 individuals each year. In 2010, there were approximately 60 Trilogy Team members working from 1400 W. Greenleaf to provide individuals with the best behavioral healthcare services available. We now have more than 235 positions spread across four offices in Chicago and Evanston and these employees are providing outreach, evidence-based clinical services and supports. And, in 2010, the Trilogy Beacon, our peer-led drop-in center, was just getting off the ground. With the support of a $330,000 Title XX grant we hired three part-time and two full-time Peer Specialists and an Employment Specialist. We opened the Trilogy Beacon with the intent of providing recovery services for approximately 400 participants per year who might otherwise not have access to treatment.

Occupational Therapy Assists People in Achieving Independence by Krista Thanos

When Trilogy was selected by the State of Illinois to be one of the first community-based mental health organizations designated as a Williams Class Member service provider, we agreed to assist men and women who have lived in nursing homes for large portions of their lives with the transition of moving into their own independent apartments. As our Williams Transition Team began enrolling people into the program, they noticed that a large number of the residents moving out on their own needed individualized supports to address deficits in their day-to-day living skills.
