Wellness Wednesday: Discussing childhood bereavement


Death rates of Americans declined over the decades due to advances in healthcare and safety.

But, living in a society where mass shootings have become a regular occurance, childhood bereavement has become an increasingly important priority.

Here in Ohio, 1 in 10 children will experience the death of a parent or sibling by age 18.

Coming up on Wellness Wednesday, we’ll discuss how to address the issue of childhood bereavement.

This news comes at a time when substance-use disorders and overdoses are on the rise.
