Since our #UnderstandGrief campaign launched last week, we have been overwhelmed with support. Thank you to our partners and everyone who has joined us in the movement to #UnderstandGrief.
With the hundreds of thousands of children and teens in our communities grieving the death of a parent, relative, or family friend right now, we’re in an epidemic of grief. Never in our lifetimes as grief been so public in the media, yet so privately complex.
A common misconception about grief is that it’s an individual emotional experience with predictable stages and a defined timeline. But the reality is that everyone responds to grief in a unique way and grief can last a lifetime…and that is completely normal.
#UnderstandGrief is a message of understanding and hope to help people who are grieving, and those who wish to support them. Find out how you can help with 10 ways we can implement grief-informed knowledge, along with social media images you can download and share. Learn more here.
