College students are naturally grieving humans. Away from home, friends and family, learning how to cope with these losses can be difficult. But for students who have experienced a death, divorce, break up, or other significant loss (perhaps due to COVID-19), new coping tools and supports are more important than ever. We will talk about how to best support these young adults while also taking care of our own mental health. We will talk about tough things, but the podcast aims to be inspiring, uplifting and even funny sometimes! Join us!

Empathetic, Compassionate and Informative

Mandi opens your eyes and hearts to different aspects of the grieving process and other mental health struggles. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone who struggles with mental health or knows someone who does.

Upset with birdsongs and burnings episode 2/9

As a california Native American I was taken back by Rebeccah’s response to rituals. I was searching for grieving and loss for my daughter who will be attending college. I was hoping that Rebeccah would introduced her culture at some point in the episode. I was left searching and found her on Instagram. She is supposedly Cherokee (a 16th). I want to let the audience know that Rebeccah is right our traditions are NOT the same. To be clear, I have NEVER seen people “drink” at our ceremonies. It’s prohibited and for her to laugh about people eating is simply immature. Also, I find it hard to believe she lived on the reservation after looking at her IG. Mandi this is not a clear/accurate understanding of Native American mourning please delete this episode. FYI- Arizona State University is the first and only university in the US to offer enrolled students free counseling 24/7/365. Arizona State University is committed to helping students stay healthy and well, both physically and mentally. Therefore, we’re excited to announce that starting this month, we are the first and only university in the U.S. to offer enrolled, ASU campus-based students free counseling whenever your student may need it — 24/7/365. Alexis can connect with a mental health provider on campus and in person, or through chat or phone telecounseling sessions, no matter where they are in the world and no matter the time of day.

ASU Counseling Services are for any Sun Devil, regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, age, student status, religion, ability, size, financial situation, the issue they're dealing with or whether they've had counseling before. Something as simple as talking to someone can help your student feel better, improve th
