News

At The Children’s Room, we welcome opportunities to participate in media coverage related to grief. We believe that the normalization of the grief experience will lead to greater compassion, hope, and growth for those experiencing the death of a loved one. Accurate and compassionate media coverage about grief is important to the broader public awareness around issues related to grief.

We will make every effort to respond in advance of your deadline, and connect you with the most accurate information and relevant sources for your stories related to grief.
