Counseling and Wellness Center
The Trinity Counseling and Wellness Center provides a full range of counseling and psychological services to all students who desire assistance in coping with personal and emotional difficulties and social relationships. All services offered by the center are free, and all contact with members of the staff is privileged and confidential as provided by law. The center is located at 135 Allen Place, accessible from the Campus Safety parking lot in the gray and white building near the handicapped ramp at the back of the lot.
Students may call the Center at (860) 297-2415 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. and Kate Morrell, our office manager, will help to set up an appointment as soon as possible. You can meet our staff members on our staff page.
Usually an appointment can be set up relatively promptly within a few days to a week, although in busy periods, or if a student wishes an appointment with a specific person or at a specific time of day, it may be longer before a time can be scheduled. If it is an urgent situation, we will schedule you as soon as possible. Appointments may routinely be made as early as 9:00 a.m. or as late as 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. In an emergency, students will be seen as quickly as necessary. You can also e-mail Dr. Randolph Lee, director of the center, assistant director, with any questions.
Counseling and Wellness Center Statement of Anti-Racism
The Counseling and Wellness Center condemns acts of racial violence, anti-Blackness and institutional racism at Trinity College, in the United States, and in the world at large. We acknowledge the racist history of the United States. We recognize that psychology itself has been used to justify racism and bigotry. We stand with our Black students, colleagues and community members. We strive to provide inclusive and culturally competent mental health services. We have a lot to learn. We commit to mandatory training for our staff on cultural competency, racism and promoting racial justice in mental health.
Statement in support of survivors of sexual and interpersonal violence at Trinity College
The Counseling and Wellness Center affirms our commitment to believing and supporting survivors of sexual and interpersonal violence at Trinity, across identity and experience. Your story matters and we will support you and your healing. We denounce those who invalidate survivors who choose not to disclose their experiences. You have a right to decide if and when to share your story. If you choose to disclose, we will help you navigate that process. We will support your decision and offer ideas to increase safety and empowerment in your life. We believe that you should have access to all the information to make an informed choice about disclosure. We pledge to create a safe space for you to make your own decisions.
