cgad_logoChildren’s Grief Awareness Day is observed every year on the Thursday before Thanksgiving Day. We invite you to take this opportunity to learn more about how children grieve and find resources to help support grieving children in your family or community.

Grief affects more children than most of us realize, and children express their grief in many different ways. Being aware of how children of different ages experience grief can help you educate others in your community about what grieving children need.

One by one, we can create a safe and caring community where grieving children and their families can receive support and the hope that comes from knowing they are not alone.

To learn more about children’s grief, visit our Resources page.

To learn more about Children’s Grief Awareness Day, visit the website for the National Alliance for Grieving Children.
