Grief Heroes Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to providing grief healing and mental wellness resources to children and teenagers to help them navigate during times of adversity.
Childhood grief has a profound impact on youth, families, and communities.
In a culture where death and grief are unspoken topics, grieving children experience loneliness due to the silence from their surroundings. Financial realities and the lack of resources, often leave families to cope on their own.
Studies show that the long term consequences of losing a parent at a young age can persist into adulthood, which is why bereaved children and surviving parents must get the help they need to deal with loss in a healthy way.
