Grief Services

The Counseling and Social Advocacy Center @ UMSL offers both individual and group counseling for individuals who have lost a loved one.

Throughout the year, different outreach events are held as a way to process, remember, and express. Outreach events are free to attend. The Counseling and Social Advocacy Center @ UMSL works to create a safe space for participants to learn, remember, and share as they remember loved ones.
