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.

 

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.
