College Student Grief

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 a loved one. Often, away from home for the first time, they are away from their usual support systems. Their peers don’t 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; a feeling 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.
 

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’s, Actively Moving Forward® chapter worked with administration to craft bereavement policies after they recognized that the lack of clear communication, on these policies, was an issue that needed to be resolved.
