PDF of the full text article.
Abstract

Although clinical experience suggests that individuals who have been bereaved as a result of suicide may be especially vulnerable to adverse sequelae, such as unusually severe grief or increased risk of committing suicide themselves, the idea that this type of bereavement is special has received only limited systematic investigation. The authors review the literature on the subject, with special attention to the clinical and research evidence about whether bereavement resulting from suicide is different from bereavement due to other types of death, and make suggestions for further clinical and epidemiological research on this question.
