This well-conducted review concluded that there was a lack of robust evidence to be able to provide clear implications for practice for interventions for people bereaved by suicide. Authors’ objectives To evaluate the effectiveness of interventions aimed at people bereaved by suicide. The review also provided a descriptive overview of interventions for persons bereaved by suicide that have been reported in the literature, which is not covered by this abstract. The assessment was conducted by one reviewer and independently checked by a second; disagreements were resolved through consensus or referral to a third reviewer. Data extraction Changes in a range of scales relating primarily to depression, grief, and post-traumatic stress were extracted.
