OASIS Grief Group

The counseling office is preparing to start our Oasis grief groups, provided by Lauren Richards of ARMC.  This group is designed for students who have lost a close loved one. Our students have been through many types of loss, and we want to support them as best we can through these difficult times.

We would greatly appreciate your help by providing us with the names of any students you know who have lost someone within the last year or so. It could be a parent, grandparent, friend, or other relative.  It is usually not a good idea for a student to attend the group if their loss is recent.  Lauren usually recommends that the loss be at least 6 months before the start of the group so that the student has had time to process the reality of the event.  Thank you in advance for your help in this very important endeavor.  If you have a referral, please email
