Children’s Grief Awareness Day

Children's Grief Awareness Day is observed each year on the third Thursday in November. This year, Children’s Grief Awareness Day falls on Thursday, November 21st. The goal of Children's Grief Awareness Day is to bring attention to the fact that being openly supportive can make the world of a difference in the life of a grieving child.

For some individuals, starting to feel okay again, while still grieving the loss of a loved one, can feel wrong. Learn more in this week's Changing Lives Podcast.
