In New Zealand there is the ever present danger of a severe earthquake occurring and we have seen the consequences of this in Christchurch as well as in Wellington more recently. Although the Christchurch earthquakes occurred a considerable time ago, the university remains aware that many people are still experiencing the results of those events in a variety of ways – directly and indirectly. The events in Wellington are likely to have similar immediate as well as on-going repercussions for students, staff and families.

It is also probable that other events – including fire or earthquake drills – may trigger unexpectedly strong emotions. These reactions are a completely normal response to an abnormal event! For further information download our 'Coping with Traumatic Incidents' brochure.

The university will provide support to all those members of the Massey community who have been affected by these and similar events. Because of the range of different situations, it is important that students contact the university to discuss their needs. Assistance is available on campus and to distance students from the campus Health & Counselling Services (or any other the other Campus Life Service including the Chaplaincy).

Please contact us to discuss how we can help you.
