New App from Heal Grief for Students Mourning A Loss

By Uloop Staff on March 3, 2020

According to a recent press release, in the United States, research suggests one in three college students experience the death of a family member or close friend in any given year. With nearly 20 million students enrolled in American universities in 2019 and the number of traumatic crises growing in communities and on college campuses, that means that at any time, more than 6.6 million college students are grieving a death and major loss.

A new app is now available for young adults, ages 18-25, grieving a death, and for the professionals who serve them. Presented by Actively Moving Forward (AMF), a HealGrief program, the app aims to connect young adults on a whole new level. The app is a tool to find support, deepen connections, engage with groups, find events, webinars, and a host of other valuable and helpful resources. Users must first register to verify and protect the safety of all users.

The AMF app is available in the App Store on iOS and the Play Store on Android devices. Once registered, new community members will receive download and sign up instructions.

Grief support is essential for young adults, ages 18-25. The ability to process grief and adapt to a new normal after a death loss leads to improved grades, higher graduation rates and the ability to maintain strong personal and professional bonds with family, friends and the community at large. That’s why AMF was created; because there was a lack of resources and support available to the staggering number of young adults that are grieving a death loss.

If you or a student you know is in mourning from the death of a family member or friend, you should check out and download the AMF app. Go to https://healgrief.org/AMF-App/ to learn more.
