Beyond the age of 18, young people are maturing and developing their individuality and sense of self. Students have left the security of school and established friendships; many will be living away from home for the first time.
At this point of great change in their lives, bereaved students can become unsettled and feelings associated with the grief can be stirred up. A student bereaved at college or university can struggle to manage their grief alongside their studies and may become overwhelmed by their emotions.
People are often at a loss as to know what to say or do to help a student who has been bereaved by the death of someone important to them.
Most grieving young people do not need a ‘bereavement expert’ they need people who care.
