Childhood Bereavement Awareness Initiative

The National Alliance for Grieving Children is committed to serving as a catalyst for leading a national movement to educate, advocate and raise awareness about the needs of grieving children, teens and their families. 

With multi-year grant funding from the New York Life Foundation, the NAGC leads the Childhood Bereavement Awareness Initiative to facilitate a national discussion about childhood grief.


Our Purpose for this campaign is to build and execute an ongoing industry-wide and public awareness initiative in order to raise understanding of and sensitivity to the issue of childhood grief.

Our Vision is for all bereaved children to have access to support and understanding in the places where they live, learn, play, and grow.

By taking an active role in the effort to raise awareness, together we can educate and empower people throughout diverse communities across the country to play a supportive role in the life of a child or teen dealing with a death loss.

Children Grieve...


...when people in their lives die.

...in a personal, individual, and unique way.

...within the context of their family, culture, and community.

...the death of someone in their life in different ways at different times.   
  

Children who are grieving a death are supported when...

...parents and caregivers provide attentiveness, warmth, and connection.

...they hear words and see actions that uplift, empower, and encourage them.

...they are prepared for things they might see and experience after the death.

...adults model healthy coping.

...they are given space to experience and express their grief in their own ways.

...they are able to connect with peers who have also experienced a death.


Let's redefine the way our world addresses grief. Together we can educate and empower people throughout diverse communities to play a supportive role in the life of a child or teen dealing with a death loss.
