Good Mourning

The death of a loved one has a big impact on your life. How do you deal with this loss and what does it mean for the rest of your life? It may be that this experience gets in the way of your studies and studying. You have trouble concentrating and run into all kinds of questions.
"Who am I , now that my loved one has passed away?"

"I'm afraid I'll forget what he/she was like."

“My grief seems to be very different from that of my relatives.”

“Where do I get the courage and energy to keep on going?”

“What will help me cope with the storm of emotions that I’m feeling?”

In the peer support group 'Good Mourning' you make room for dealing with your loss. The emphasis is on sharing and exchanging stories and experiences with a group of peer students that are all dealing with the loss of a loved one. This offers recognition, acknowledgement and support. 

The group that starts in March will be a Dutch-speaking group. If there is sufficient interest, there may be an English-speaking group too. If you are interested in joining an English-speaking group in the future, please let us know via
