Health & Wellbeing

Caring and connecting, always.

An environment that promotes good mental and physical health is essential for young adults. To provide our residents with support, Trinity has a Health & Wellbeing Counsellor on-campus throughout the academic year.

Trinity’s Health & Wellbeing service provides early identification, assessment and intervention of students at risk or in need. All support sessions are planned and coordinated using evidence-based counselling skills and interventions. Trinity has an overarching Mentally Healthy College Strategy that addresses mental health promotion, prevention, early identification and stigma reduction. In 2017 Trinity attained recognition as Mental Health Skilled Workplace.

 

THRIVE @ Trinity

Trinity has developed its own tailored THRIVE framework that guides the services of Liz Caddy, our Health & Wellbeing Counsellor. THRIVE incorporates UWA’s award-winning Fit For Study program, The Okanagan Charter (an international charter for health promoting universities and colleges), and Trinity’s motto of Friendship, Learning and Growth.

THRIVE promotes a holistic approach to health in the Trinity community, with a young adult context. It focuses on the health of oneself - mind and body - and on the health of one’s surroundings – environment and community.
