Summary What is normal when it comes to grief? And can it become a mental illness? Insight looks at whether it's possible to put a timeframe around grief, whether it can be managed, if anti-depressants help, and whether some cultures are better than others at dealing with this powerful emotional state. Currently, grief reactions are not included in the mental illnesses handbook, DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), as it is considered a normal human response to bereavement. Some psychiatrists argue, however, that acute grief experienced for more than 12 months should be classified as a new psychiatric disorder in the next edition of the DSM in 2013. As well as experts on both sides of the new proposal, Insight hears powerful personal stories of loss to find out how Australians of all backgrounds are managing their grief and what, if anything, is helping them get through. Producer: Jane Worthington Associate Producer: Hannah Meagher and Sarah Allely Australian current affairs forum program, presented by Jenny Brockie. (An SBS Production) CC
