"Teen Resource Focuses on Grief from Teen's Perspective" describes a booklet and video series that talks about grief in the words of bereaved teens themselves.

"New Guide Gives Employers Step-by-Step Aid When an Employee Dies by Suicide" reviews "A Manager's Guide to Suicide Postvention in the Workplace," which is aptly subtitled "10 Action Steps for Dealing with the Aftermath of a Suicide."
"Grief vs. Depression Debate Continues after Diagnosis Criteria Altered" looks at fallout from a change in the DSM V, including a document from a group of renowned grief support practitioners protesting what one of the document's authors calls "the trend to pathologize grief."
Survivor Showcase 05-04-13: Personal News on Grief and Recovery is the latest edition of a regular feature on Grief after Suicide, highlighting the stories of survivors of suicide loss (and other bereaved people) whose experiences with grief and recovery have been reported in the news. This edition features Salon news editor Alex Halperin's in-depth look at his brother's life and death by suicide and a CNN op-ed by a woman whose father and son killed themselves with guns, almost 50 years apart.
