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.

“Bereavement is not a simple reaction to a single event. It is also a social event, an economic event, a spiritual event, and an event with a history and a future. I asked myself who is lost when someone dies. It is more than simply a life that is lost. We also lose a relationship, the self we were in that relationship and a way of life in which the deceased play a role. These are the qualities of life, aspects of what we experience; these are not symptoms of an illness.”

Phyllis Silverman, Co-founder, 1927 - 2016
