If you haven't already noticed, Interstate 95 is a mess!! Please consider this when traveling to your appointment. Interstate 95 north and south are unfortunately down to one and two lanes between the I-95 and I-495 split and Exit 8 (Concord Pike).


In order to prevent you from missing your appointment, we have a few tips. First, plan on leaving your home 15 to 30 minutes earlier than usual. Second, check for traffic. Use your phone or computer to check your GPS to determine the status of traffic, your estimated arrival time, and possible alternative routes. Third, if you can avoid Interstate 95, please consider doing so. 

Taking these recommendations into consideration will ensure that you are on time for your appointment so that we can spend as much time addressing your health as possible. Trinity has an on-time policy. If tardy, it is up to us to decide if we will be able to accommodate your visit. If you miss your appointment or are late and we are unable to accommodate, you may be required to reschedule and pay a $95 missed appointment fee. Please visit the Delaware Department of Transportation website for more information https://restorethecorridor.com/.

  • The Trinity Way - This video takes you on a tour of Trinity's vision to a healthier life.


As we all know, mental health is just as important as our physical health. In fact, our mood, behavior, attitude, environment, and stress level all affect how we physically feel. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. The WHO also states that “there is no health without mental health.”


Mental health is not limited to diagnosis such as depression, anxiety, bipolar, or schizophrenia. Everybody’s mental health matters. And therapy is for everyone: happy, sad, angry, grieving, anxious, overwhelmed, or stressed. Sometimes we just need someone to listen and offer constructive and biased feedback. 

For those that take medications for their mental health, therapy can add an additional benefit. Therapy allows you get to the route of the problem (if present) by talking and working through it while medication addresses it chemically within the body.

But like previously said, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE A “PROBLEM” to seek therapy. Anyone can benefit. Forget the stigma and embarrassment, therapy can be life changing. You'll be surprised to see how great you may feel. 

 Please speak with your health care provider for more information and a list of recommended mental health providers. Most insurance does not require a referral to seek therapy. You can also use resources like psychologytoday.com and blackbrowndelawaretherapists.com/ to find local therapists. During the pandemic, therapy can also be done virtually. Please also remember that physicians like psychiatrists and psychologists usually do NOT offer individual talk therapy. They work to diagnose and treat with medication or other forms of treatment. If that is not your interest, please schedule with a mental health therapist.
