Why AMF…Because We Get It!

1 in 3 college students experience a loved one’s death or a loved one’s diagnosis of a terminal illness.

AMF, short for Actively Moving Forward, connects and empowers grieving college students. These students support one another with peer-led grief support groups as well as participate in community service events in memory of their loved ones, and by doing so, they raise awareness about the needs of grieving young adults across the country.

Because we believe that…
No one should grieve alone!

Grieving young adults are often the forgotten grievers. Regardless of years gone by, are you or someone you know a bereaved young adult between the ages of 18-25?

The AMF Network connects and empowers grieving young adults to actively move forward through one of life’s most difficult journey, grief. Through this network, one can gain the support and understanding one faces during these exciting, yet sometimes challenging years.

Many people, especially those for whom the pet is a constant companion, confide in their animals, talk to them throughout the day, give and receive deep affection, and come to count on their presence as a critical part of the day. So when your beloved pet dies, it’s not unusual to feel overwhelmed by the intensity of your sorrow.
