Suicide and Sudden Death Bereavement in Australia

Grief reactions change over time. However, only a limited number of studies, and none in Australia, have
analysed changes in individual grief reactions longitudinally. The aim is to examine changes in grief reactions, mental
health and suicidality of close family members bereaved by suicide, 6, 12 and 24months after their loss compared with
those bereaved by other forms of sudden death, adjusting for confounding factors.
