Support for the Grieving
Few things compare to the pain of losing someone you love. While there’s no way to avoid intense feelings of grief, there are healthier ways to come to navigate your loss.
Our counselors specialize in working with college-age individuals and they can offer support in many ways. Counseling sessions are free to currently enrolled students.
Serious loss can be overwhelming. If you, or someone you love, needs support to work through the grieving process the University Church Counseling Center may be a helpful resource.
Join others who have experienced loss and in community find healing and hope.
Actively Moving Forward® (AMF) is a national network created in response to the needs of grieving young adults. Once on their website, you can get connected with support groups targeting college students, young adults, or professionals.
Empathy vs. Sympathy
Don't know what to do to help someone you love who is grieving. Extend empathy which is a skill that can bring people together and make people feel included, while sympathy creates an uneven power dynamic and can lead to more isolation and disconnection.
Organize a meal train
Organize a meal train for a colleague who has experienced loss. Check with them first to know what meals, frequency of meals, etc. is most helpful.
