DSM05 DSM-5 - Depressive Disorders
Now, the developers of the DSM-5 have recognized that while most people have grief reactions within a typical range, 10 to 15 percent of grievers have severe reactions to the loss of a loved one and thus may need treatment that includes prescription medication and therapy.  So now, a person who is grieving a loss potentially may be diagnosed with depression or an adjustment disorder.  Since the profound sadness that stems from grief can look a lot like the sadness depression brings, and since this similarity can create a dilemma for mental health professionals, the bereavement exclusion from these diagnoses has become highly controversial.
