Grief Support Resource Library
If you are supporting a child who is grieving our Resources Library is here to support you. Below you will find documents created by both the National Alliance for Children's Grief as well as The Dougy Center. Dustin's Place is a member of NACG and trained by The Dougy Center.
The National Alliance for Children’s Grief promotes awareness of the needs of children and teens grieving a death and provides education and resources for anyone who wants to support them… Because all grieving children deserve a chance to heal.
Grief is a natural response to the death of someone significant in a child or teen's life. When the death is by suicide, it can make the grief experience more complex. Suicide, by nature, is stigmatizing and isolating. This guide explores ways we can stabilize and strengthen children as they integrate losses from suicide into their lives.
When someone dies the entire family is impacted, including the children. Having a child friendly space in your funeral home ensures the youngest grievers are taken care of with compassionate care. Funeral Homes that are welcoming to children not only make them comfortable, but their caregivers as well which can set you apart.
