Grief Out Loud- The Dougy Center

126: when a child dies of suicide – anne moss rogers– 30 minutes

I’ve done a lot of interviews lately. But this is the one time I could talk almost entirely about my grief. The Dougy Center is a national organization that focuses on grieving children and their families. Their guide to talking to children of any age about a suicide is one of the best I’ve ever read. It comes complete with scripts on what to say to children at any age.
