Actively Moving Forward® (AMF), a HealGrief® program is a national network that connects, supports and empowers grieving young adults, ages 18-25, faculty, and the professionals who support them.
Over the last decade, there have been a tremendous amount of resources that have gone into benefitting grieving children. These resources seem to disintegrate at the age of 17-18 years old when a child is now considered a young adult. Although considered a young adult, it is important to note that they are still working on hitting developmental milestones, and their brains are not yet fully developed until around the age of 25.
This young adult population is most vulnerable in the face of a life-changing event, such as a death. They seek more than ever, a way to connect with others; they need the support and learned coping skills to obtain a healthy personal growth; and they want to be empowered to “actively move forward” through their grief.
Whether you are already serving grieving young adults or looking to start, AMF has created the AMF Professional’s Network, a new outlet for you to connect with other like-minded professionals to have a conversation about the challenges and benefits of serving grieving young adults.
This is more than just local support, it’s about helping grieving young adults fulfill their potential during one of life’s most difficult times, their grief journey.
Join us and other professionals seeking to address the unique issues of young adult grief.
