This study examined suicidal behaviour & its correlates in 149 patients who signed informed consent statements to participate in a National Institute of Mental Health-funded treatment study of complicated grief. Suicidality was assessed using a structured clinical interview administered prior to beginning treatment. Data were gathered from April 2001-April 2004. The results showed that thoughts of wanting to die after the death of a loved one were reported by 65% of participants. 9% made a suicidal attempt & 29% engaged in indirect suicidal behaviour.
