How can we design better communities to help young people grieve?

The psychotherapist Darian Leader says that ‘mourning requires other people’. But what does that ‘other people’ look like in a time of extreme isolation, in a time when young people feel lonelier than the elderly, in a time where community is increasingly sought in a polarising, online world?

This report is a summary of both primary and secondary research we have done over the last few months to seek answers to this central question:

We hope you find it interesting and helpful.
