Little Blue Dinosaur Foundation Road Trauma Grief Support Packages
Little Blue Dinosaur Foundation’s safety awareness campaign has reached millions.
Now the organisation is establishing special Road Trauma Grief Support Packages for families who suffer the unimaginable tragedy of losing a child to road trauma.
Tom’s mother Michelle McLaughlin is calling on all Australians to help raise $150,000 to fund the 12-month long care packages, each containing vouchers for childcare, cleaning, domestic, and cooking services - filling a gap felt firsthand by Michelle.
The death of a child is considered the worst stressor a person can go through. Studies have found that bereaved parents, particularly mothers, are at an increased risk of depression, anxiety, PTSD, C-PTSD (Complex PTSD), suicide, panic disorders, substance abuse, immune and cardiovascular disease as well as cancers.
The Road Trauma Grief Service Packages will make walking that first year a tiny bit easier for affected families, better supporting this extremely vulnerable group.
