If you require anything else, you can pidge either of us a note, or send us an email, and we will be happy to help. Requests for welfare supplies are treated as strictly confidential, and dealt with as discreetly as possible.
7. Peer Supporters
Just a reminder that Lincoln has a number of trained peer supporters, who are able to meet with you to discuss in confidence any worries or concerns that you may have. Their names are: Elise Maes, Annina Graedel, Holly Hathrell, Laura Johnson, and Ferdinando Randisi. Their contact details are provided in the attached poster. You can also speak to either of us (Rose and Jochen!), to the college doctor, or to Mel the chaplain.
8. Something to read
This was published at the start of January as a 'new year's resolution' feature, but it's never too late to start trying to think more positively. This article explores some of the ways to stop and disrupt negative thought patterns, and hopefully feel a bit more cheerful.
Wishing you all a wonderful week,
Rose and Jochen
