Grief and Coping Resources

The pain of loss can feel overwhelming, but there are healthy ways to cope with grief and learn to heal. Information and support around the grieving process for college students can be found at: 

  • How to Navigate Grief and Loss as a College Student
  • HealGrief.org - a social support network that is there when everyone else goes away and the real grieving begins. Everything we do is inspired by our core belief that no one should ever grieve alone. HealGrief® provides the tools and resources to guide one’s journey with grief into healthy personal growth.
  • ModernLoss.com - a place to share the unspeakably taboo, unbelievably hilarious, and unexpectedly beautiful terrain of navigating your life after a death. Beginners welcome.

Additional mental health resources can found here. 

Updates and safety precautions related to the recent tragedies in Moscow can be found at police.wsu.edu.

Emergency Student Funding Request

Student Emergency Funds are available for students experiencing financial emergencies that include, but are not limited to, housing, food, health care, and materials required for classes. These emergency funds are available thanks to generous contributions from donors.

Student Care Network

When a student’s emotional or psychological well-being, physical health, or academic performance are of concern, you can always use the Student Care Network to get them the help they need. Early intervention can make a big difference in outcomes.

Campus Resources and Support

There are many resources—both on campus and in the community—that you can call on for support. Visit this page for a list of resources that can help you, no matter what WSU campus you attend.
