In This Together is a project that has been investigating this core question:
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?
We have summarised the findings of our project in a report which is a summary of both primary and secondary research we have done over the last few months.
In our research we conducted a survey of young people across the UK and Europe, interviewed bereaved young people, child and community psychologists, experts in community-building and even had a conversation with a lesser spotted anthropologist of grief.
