An estimated 1 in 12 children in the U.S. will experience the death of a parent or sibling before they reach the age of 18.

An estimated 6 million youth will be bereaved by age 18, and the number more than doubles by age 25, to 14.7 million. Childhood bereavement is a prevalent and critical public health issue that can profoundly impact individuals and communities.
