Prolonged grief affects 7 percent of people who have lost a significant other. The prevalence is much higher among parents who have lost a child, as well as when the cause of death is sudden and violent. There is insufficient knowledge about and capacity for practicing treatment tailored to prolonged grief conditions. For one, this is a problem for the many people bereaved by suicide.

NSSF offers PGDT training as part of the work to improve the forms of treatment available to the bereaved experiencing prolonged grief.
