Helping Schools Help Grieving Kids

March 4, 2015

In the U.S., about one in 20 children will lose a parent by the time they reach 16, and the vast majority will experience the loss of a family member or friend before they are 18.

The New York Life Foundation, along with the National Center for School Crisis & Bereavement, convened the first Coalition to Support Grieving Students in January and launched a new website, grievingstudents.org, designed to empower educators to support grieving students.

The coalition is comprised of organizations whose members play an important role in reaching grieving children at school, including teachers, administrators, principals, school counselors and school nurses.

"Although school professionals have long confronted the issue of student grief, for the first time, all of the right stakeholders are formally working together to address this issue in a concerted, interdisciplinary way," Heather Nesle of New York Life said.
