College Student Grief

College is a fun place, but it’s a hard place to grieve. -Former AMFer

We know that many college students feel alone in their grief. That’s why we are here. Finding support can be an essential part to a healthy grief experience.  

College grief support is essential for the grieving college student!

College grief support is instrumental to a grieving college student  – College students are particularly vulnerable when stricken with grief. Chances are, most students have never experienced the death of someone in their lives. Often, away from home for the first time, means also being away from a familiar support system. Peers may not understand grief and therefore, these students don’t receive the empathy or support they need. With many college campuses having limited grief support resources available, these students are at high risk to a host of issues; feelings of isolation; an inability to focus; a lack of energy; and depression. These issues can be a contributing factor to the overall dropout rate and even suicide. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

AMF has already supported over 3000 students on over 200 campuses throughout the United States.

Some of the chapters go beyond supporting one another. Penn and other Actively Moving Forward® chapters work with administration to craft a student bereavement policy after recognizing that the lack of clear communication, on this issue is a concern that needs to be resolved.

If you are a grieving young adult between the ages of 18 to 25, then AMF is here for you! By joining a national network of others who understand, you will have access to support, connections, and empowerment to help you keep actively move forward in a positive proactive way and do so in memory of your person.
