Student Grief Resources

National Students of AMF
The National Students of AMF Support Network is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting college students grieving the illness or death of a loved one. “AMF” initially stood for Ailing Mothers & Fathers as well as the initials of the co-founder’s mother, Anne Marie Fajgenbaum. As we’ve grown to include all students coping with the illness or death of a loved one (however defined) as a part of our network, we use AMF to describe our incredible students– “Actively Moving Forward.”  http://www.studentsofamf.org

Kids and Teens, Six-Week Grief Support Group for (ages 5-17)
Youth experiencing the death of a family member or close friend have wounds that go much deeper. With the help of a support group for kids and teens, families have the opportunity to work through their feelings of loss.  Each session focuses on specific objectives and offers activities(art, music, photographs, group discussion) that are educational and supportive.
