    Personal profile

    Research interests

    Bristol doctoral researcher at looking at student mental health and wellbeing. A UoB studentship begun in 2018 using mental health survey data to track prevalence of common mental health disorders, wellbeing, and help-seeking behaviour in the student population. The work will evaluate a new ‘whole university’ non-clinical support framework (a pastoral advisory service) in a sector where there is limited research evidence for what kind of support really works for students. It’s a mixed methods approach, using cross-sectional surveys, secondary data of prescribing and counselling trends, focus groups and interviews, and snapshot census surveys.

    Research interests are: student mental health, student wellbeing, support interventions, MH and depression/anxiety in student populations

    Jacks is part of several Bristol research groups: The Elizabeth Blackwell Mental Health in Young People Research Initiative, Centre for Academic Mental Health, Bristol’s Suicide and Self Harm Research group, and the Behavioural Genetics Research group.
