Students Talk About Loss

Students Talk About Loss are groups specifically for students meeting regularly within university campuses. University can be such a challenging place when you are grieving, you might be living away from home or family and not able to visit important places. We hope our Students Talk About Loss meet ups can be places of support, community and finding joy among the grief.

London School of Economics

Our first ever Students Talk About Loss meet up group has been running since 2021 at the London School of Economics.  

The group is facilitated by Joss, Sarita and Zoe and it’s a safe space to talk about loss, how you are finding grief at university and support each other. 

Dates for 2024 will be announced here shortly.

To contact Joss, Sarita and Zoe email – they can’t wait to hear from you. 

Hi! My name is Joss. I am a junior member of staff at LSE, having graduated in 2021. I signed up to facilitate the Students Talk About Loss meet up group at LSE because as a student, I found that the university’s wellbeing services were overstretched. I therefore wanted to do something to help bereaved students get the support that they need and deserve.

Hi! My name is Sarita. I’m a Philosophy undergraduate at LSE set to graduate in 2025. I signed up to facilitate Students Talk About Loss because I want to help in normalise conversations around grief and death by creating a safe, supportive space for bereaved students.

Hi there! I’m Zoe, a 2nd year student at LSE, and I help Joss run some of the sessions. I am so proud of the group we have created, where students can share their experiences of grief in a safe and non-judgemental environment, and seek comfort and advice from people in the same position as them. Whether you want to talk about your experience, or just want to listen to others, everyone is welcome so please come along!
