Health & Wellbeing

An environment that promotes good mental and physical health is essential for young adults. Liz Caddy, our resident Health & Wellbeing Counsellor, is on-campus three days per week for your support.

Trinity senior staff and Resident Advisors are also trained in Mental Health First Aid. Each semester training is available for residents upon request.

Liz’s services are flexible, so if her door is open, drop in Monday-Wednesday, or make an appointment. All appointments are completely confidential and free-of-charge. No referral is needed.

Our Counselling Service

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. Referrals to other health services are also made if required.

Trinity has developed its own tailored THRIVE framework that guides Liz’s counselling. 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.
