In New Mexico, 1 in 10 children will experience the death of a parent or sibling before they reach 18. Unaddressed grief is likely to result in negative outcomes in a child’s life.
The Children’s Grief Center provides free grief support services for families after the death of a loved one and each year they serve about 700 New Mexicans.
