Children's Grief Awareness Day is a time for acknowledging and supporting children who are grieving. Grief is a universal experience, but for youth, it can be particularly challenging. This special day serves as a reminder of the unique needs of children’s grief and aims to raise awareness about the resources and support available to them. This day encourages open conversations about grief and highlights the importance of providing these young hearts with a safe space to express themselves.
Overall, Indiana Ranks 15th highest in the nation for childhood bereavement.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED:
Show solidarity by dressing in blue on November 16.
Spread awareness by sharing the message with family, friends, and your community. Post on social media, host an event, or start a conversation.
Your monetary donation to Erin’s House helps ensure that youth who are grieving receive the support they need. Or consider giving your time by volunteering as a group facilitator.
