Young Adult Grief Awareness Month
AMF is looking to stand up to the stigma of grief by building a community of kindness! One of the themes we hear across our AMFers’ grief journeys is the prevalence of feeling isolated. These feelings do not just affect an individual’s social life, but can impact their functioning in school and/or the workplace, as well as their overall health and wellbeing.
AMF works to combat this by helping to build communities of support and empowerment for grieving young adults across the country. While AMF concentrates on grief due to a loved one’s terminal illness or death, we know that there are many young adults facing different types of grief.
Will you join us?
While young adults are a very overlooked population, there are amazing researchers helping us to learn more about the unique issues and needs of these individuals.
If you are interested in learning more about the wonderful research that has been done on young adult grief, check out our It’s All in the Research PDF.
