Why AMF…Because We Get It!

1 in 3 college students experience a loved one’s death or a loved one’s diagnosis of a terminal illness.

AMF, short for Actively Moving Forward, connects and empowers grieving college students. These students support one another with peer-led grief support groups as well as participate in community service events in memory of their loved ones, and by doing so, they raise awareness about the needs of grieving young adults across the country.

Because we believe that…
No one should grieve alone!

Actively Moving Forward (AMF), a HealGrief program

Grieving young adults are often the forgotten grievers. Regardless of years gone by, are you or someone you know a bereaved young adult between the ages of 18-25?

The AMF Network connects and empowers grieving young adults to actively move forward through one of life’s most difficult journey, grief. Through this network, one can gain the support and understanding one faces during these exciting, yet sometimes challenging years.
