Show Notes

A recent Lancet study estimates that up to 1.5 million children worldwide have lost at least one primary or secondary caregiver as a result of the pandemic. Indeed, orphanhood and grief are an essential part of the story of this pandemic, one whose impact is just beginning to be understood. In this episode we explore the connection between caregiver death and children’s mental health with Laura Olague, director of Children’s Grief Center of El Paso, a grantee of the Hogg Foundation. In a bonus segment, Ryan Sutton, a former guest of the podcast, offers some timely reflections on Simone Biles and athlete mental health.
