Welfare Officer

The Welfare Officer is the Rev'd Jennifer Adams-Massmann (she/her). She is available to see any member of College to discuss emotional, physical or mental health and find support within the College or University.

Please feel free to get in touch for:

  • A listening ear and non-judgemental conversations about anything on your mind - from loneliness and academic stress to family or relationship problems, questions about gender and sexuality, substance use, or any other issue.
  • A first stop to talk about mental health concerns (low mood/worry or anxiety/depression, eating disorders, self-harm, OCD or other issues) and how to access more in-depth help in College or the University as needed. I have mental health first aid training as well as "clinical pastoral training" (CPE) in hospital settings so I am comfortable and have experience helping people in emergencies.
  • Information & support if you have a disability (physical or mental health-related, learning disabilities, etc.) 
  • Questions about how to address harassment, sexual harassment or bullying within the University (as well as prior experiences of physical, emotional or sexual abuse) and where to get counselling and support

Drop-in Hours

CORONAVIRUS-RELATED UPDATE: I will not have drop-in hours but am very happy to 'meet' people either virtually via Zoom or similar platforms or to meet in person for a walk or chat in the Deer Park. Please email me so we can set up a time to chat. You can also call the number above which will forward to my mobile number.
