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.

Webinar Series

July 13th @ 1-2pm EST

Presented by: Kiri Thompson MS, LPC, NCC

There are many misconceptions about Millennials – how they work, live, and grieve. Do you ever find yourself struggling with a bit of a compassion gap? Trying to figure out how they will function in today’s world with their ideas of what life and death should be like?

We will explore the world they both live and grieve in. Why social media and technology seem to outweigh personal connections, and how we can better relate to this ever-growing population.

This educational webinar, hosted by AMF, a HealGrief program is open to young adults, college/university professionals, Grief and Mental Health Professionals, and community members interested in learning more about the unique issues of grief in our modern world.

This webinar is FREE!

To sign up for this event, please contact Kiri Thompson at Kiri-AMF@HealGrief.org to register.
