KidsPeace has been helping children and adolescents deal with grief and other emotional and mental health issues since 1882. Therefore, we are delighted to support Highmark Blue Cross in its third annual "Children's Grief Awareness Day" on November 18, 2010. Originated by the Highmark Caring Place, A Center for Grieving Children, Adolescents and Their Families, this awareness day acknowledges the impact that death and loss have on children and families and encourages all caring individuals to offer comfort and assistance to grieving children. Highmark encourages everyone to Wear Blue on November 18 to commemorate the day and show support for children experiencing grief.
