We at AMF don’t believe you just “get over” your grief, but we do believe that you can keep Actively Moving Forward in your grief journey. Everyone’s grief journey looks different, so here are some helpful sites that may assist you in finding the right resources for you.
The mission of Actively Moving Forward is to support young adults grieving the illness or death of a loved one. We accomplish this with AMF campus chapters, which consist of a support group where bereaved students can relate to peers also facing the unique challenges of grief during their college years. In addition, each chapter’sservice group, open to the entire campus community, helps raise awareness and funds for causes important to chapter members.
