National Grief Awareness Day

National Grief Awareness Day - August 30th

Any person who has had a loved one die often feel alone in their grief, like nobody understands what they're going through. Experiencing a death can be overwhelming for anyone, no matter what age they are or beliefs they have.

People experiencing grief need support. The first step in that support is for people to become more aware of what grief stricken people are going through. We want to bring the myths,cliche,and stigma out of the dark an into the light.

Grief Awareness Day is designed to help us all become more aware of the needs of grieving people and of the benefits that they obtain through the support of others.

Grief Awareness Day is 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 human being. An opportunity for all of us to recognize and support the millions of people grieving across the world.

The thousands grieving right in our own communities, and the grieving individuals we know and see in our daily lives. After a tragic loss the griever is often lost,alone and misunderstood.

Grief Awareness Day is an opportunity to make sure that all who are grieving receive the support they need.

More information will be available in the coming months. Our goal is to providing new audios, videos and online training as part of Grief Awareness Day and be hosting a yearly conference as a community event.

We don't need anyone to remind us to grieve. We grieve anyway. This is not what this day will be about. We have awareness days for many things and situations. This day will be for educating our society about the cliches and myths of grief. To open the dialogue and start a conversation. Grieving is not talked about a lot. People do not "get over" a loved one nor "move on" for example. Those are two cliches said to thousands of grievers all over our world everyday. Many grievers live in silence. We want to bring grief awareness into our schools, mental health,work,and home. With your donations it will make this day possible! Thank you for your consideration.
