Student Grief and Loss Gathering

Main content start

If you are currently or have ever experienced the death of a significant person in your life, or are experiencing feelings of grief in a time of uncertainty, this is an opportunity to share your experiences, suggestions, and concerns with others in a safe and supportive environment.

Student Grief Gatherings are held 3x/quarter and are facilitated by staff from ORSL, Well-Being, CAPS and GLO. Sessions are sometimes themed according to different types of grief, the cycle of the calendar and modes of expressions. This event is free and open only to Stanford students.

Sessions will be held on Wednesdays of weeks 2/6/8 during Fall/Winter/Spring quarters (see schedule below). We meet in the CIRCLE Common Room (Room 302 on the 3rd floor of Old Union) at 4:00 pm.
