Education & Academic Industry 

  1. Bonsall High School 

“Melissa Lunardini with Radical Grief provides extraordinary guidance to schools and educational teams working to develop programming to serve students experiencing trauma and grief. Melissa’s experience as an educator, coupled with her deep understanding of how grief and trauma manifest in children, has transformed how our team thinks about school supports. 

Melissa guided our team through a brainstorming and problem-solving process that helped us to identify additional student needs, gaps in support, and areas of improvement. Melissa sought out diverse and community-centered voices to be part of our process. This resulted in culturally relevant and responsive guidance to help us better support our student populations. Our team is better prepared to make systemic changes to our educational practices and be more responsive to the cultural, grief, and trauma needs of our students.”
