Grieving Children In Utah Needs Emotional Support

According to the Children’s Collaborative, more than 60,000 children in Utah have experienced the death of someone close to them, such as parents, guardians or siblings. The pilot’s objective is to help them access and receive the help they desperately need.

Governor Cox said in his statement that, one in every 15 children who would lose a parent, guardian, or sibling before the age of 18 ought not to suffer alone. Some children experienced emotional trauma at a young age, leading to poor academic performance, low self-esteem, and even depression that highly affects their daily lives.

The Utah governor strongly suggested that we use the facilities and resources available in order to provide support to those children, according to St. George News Utah.

He also mentioned the significance in keeping mind that, children who lost their parents are most likely to experience financial and housing difficulties, which would result to homelessness.

According to Public News Service, the Utah pilot program will be making the preparations in order for the program to be implemented in other communities across the country.

The program will utilize both a “school-based identification strategy and a data matching system” to render assistance, according to the group.
