Help us continue to break the silence and give a Voice to grieving young adults around the nation!

AMF is about SUPPORT and EMPORWEMENT,
beacuse the journey is better when we realize
WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER

The Issues

22% to 30% of college students (approximately 6 million) has experienced the death of a family member or close friend within the last year (1) But, no one talks about it, so many feel alone. A “ silent epidemic”,(2) Actively Moving Forward (AMF), a HealGrief program’s prevalence rises to the shocking statistic that 1 in 3 students are coping whit the death or terminal iliness and of a loved one

Bereaved students are at risk of social withdrawal, developmental problems, mental illiness, and decreased academic perfomance (3) These students need opportunities to connect with their peers ,support one another, and channel their grief towards positive outlets, such as community service.

Actively Moving Forward (AMF) has been helping students create chapters of AMF on college campuses

These chapters have been important ways in wich students connect with others , find a safe place to share their experiences , and grow through their grief journey whith people they know support and empower them along the way.

No matter who you are or where you are in your grief journey, we encourage you to take these simple steps in joining thir national movement to make a difference for young adults everywhere.
