Thursday, November 18th- Children’s Grief Awareness Day

The Highmark Caring Place, A Center for Grieving Children, Adolescents and Their Families, is a safe place where grieving children and families can come together and be with others who understand what they’re going through. An international observance created in 2008 by the Highmark Caring Place, Children's Grief Awareness Day is observed every year on the third Thursday in November.

Children's Grief Awareness Day seeks to bring attention to the fact that often support can make all the difference in the life of a grieving child. It provides an opportunity for all of us to raise awareness of the painful impact that the death of a loved one has in the life of a child, an opportunity to make sure that these children receive the support they need. For more information, please visit www.highmarkcaringplace.com

Please show your support for Children’s Grief Awareness Day on Thursday, November 18th by wearing blue.
