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.
