Coalition to Support Grieving Students
The Coalition to Support Grieving Students was convened by the New York Life Foundation,
a pioneering advocate for the cause of childhood bereavement, and the
National Center for School Crisis and Bereavement, which is led by pediatrician and
childhood bereavement expert David J. Schonfeld, M.D. The Coalition created grievingstudents.org,
a groundbreaking, practitioner-oriented website designed to provide educators with the information,
insights, and practical advice they need to better understand and meet the needs of the millions of grieving kids in America’s classrooms.
