Jehan’s piece looks at gaps in death and grief support for the young. While young people are not as likely to die as older people, they still have to confront the deaths of others.
“In other cultures, grief is shared. But in Western culture, it’s private,” explains Julia Craig, who Jehan interviews.
Julia and Jodie Botica have decided to do their bit to provide a solution, starting ‘Wish You Were Here’, to connect young adults who have experienced grief, and give them a safe space to talk about it. They hope to have a website up soon and we wish them luck.
