Raising Awareness for Child, Teen Grief Awareness Day
Grief and loss are always trying, but they can be especially impactful in young people. Child and Teen Grief Awareness Day, which occurs each November, is one opportunity to acknowledge this, but the holidays are another time to be sensitive to it. If you know a child working through grief or loss in the greater Cleveland area, and you believe he or she could use some additional support, please let me know.
November 21, 2013, is Child and Teen Grief Awareness Day. It’s a day for those to remember the children and teenagers who have experienced the death of a loved one.
Child and Teen Grief Awareness Day is observed on the Thursday before Thanksgiving each year, according to an official with The Solace Tree. Officials say this day is a reminder to families who feel alone during this time that they are not forgotten.
To participate in Child and Teen Grief Awareness Day, people can wear blue and let people know why they’re wearing blue, according to an official with The Solace Tree.
