Whether reeling from the death of a loved one in recent weeks or struggling a year or more after a significant loss the GriefNet Support Network will provide a safe, non‐judgmental atmosphere for exploration, to nurture and for growth. The group experience is not about “getting over it” but rather will help one “grow with it” by integrating loss into living.

Participants are never required to share or participate in any particular group activity but are merely invited to share when it feels right. Finally, while members will be encouraged to leverage any personal religious or spiritual resources to assist with their grief process we want to make it clear that this support network, although sponsored by the Office of Religious Life, neither assumes participants are a part of any faith tradition nor will it advocate for any particular beliefs or practices.

Who can attend?

GriefNet is open to all undergraduate, graduate and professional students currently enrolled at Vanderbilt University. There is no charge to participate.

You may have suffered a recent loss or are still dealing with the effects of a death from long ago. There are no time limits on grief or for GriefNet.
