Grief & Wellness Awareness

February is Black History Month

Childhood bereavement is a critical issue and an increasingly important national priority. The death of a parent, sibling, or other important person in a child’s life is one of the most frequently reported disruptive childhood experiences. Disparities in mortality rates across race and ethnic groups in the U.S. result in disproportionate youth bereavement prevalence. Understanding how children of different racial and ethnic background are impacted in essential to help every bereaved child find hope and healing.
