Children touched by the death of a parent or sibling who grieve alone are at greater risk for suicide, substance abuse and behavioral disorders. “Grief is a journey that never goes away. It just changes,” writes Mary Beth Creger McIntire, CEO of Comfort Zone Camp, a nonprofit that transforms the lives of children by helping them learn healthy ways to deal with grief. A political science graduate with two grown daughters, Mary Beth learned first-hand about childhood grief from her husband, Rob, who lost a brother as a child. “There is so much positive change taking place in understanding childhood grief and helping children be resilient. I’m glad to be a small part of this change.”
