Children’s Grief Awareness Month serves as a poignant reminder of the importance of acknowledging and supporting grieving children and their families. According to the JAG Institute’s 2023 Childhood Bereavement Estimation Model Report, an alarming statistic underscores the urgency of this effort:
1 in 10 children in Ohio will experience the death of a parent or sibling by age 18.
In recognition of Children's Grief Awareness Month this November, we are partnering with the National Alliance for Children's Grief (NACG) to "flip the script" on grief.
What is Flip the Script? We are shifting the perspective and changing the way grief talk is typically handled. We know that many traditional expressions of sympathy can be unhelpful or even hurtful to grievers.
Follow us all month long and please join us as we inform, encourage, and support individuals on this journey. Visit the NACG website for more ways to Practice #FliptheScript.
