Talking to Children About Death was produced by the Division of Scientific Information, National Institute of Mental Health, to help parents care for their children and themselves in ways that foster good mental health. By talking to children about death we may discover what they know and do not know if misconceptions, fears or worries are present. We can then help them by providing needed information, comfort and understanding. Talking does not solve all problems, but without talking we are even more limited in our ability to help.
