Children’s Grief Awareness Month

November is recognized globally as Children’s Grief Awareness Month, symbolized by the blue butterfly which represents hope. When someone in their family dies, grieving children and youth can be the ‘forgotten mourners’, so it is important to let them know we are here for them. 

Each year, Lighthouse helps to raise awareness for children’s grief through a variety of initiatives and events leading up to Children’s Grief Awareness Day, which takes place annually on the third Thursday in November.
