The changes to DSM 5 woulld mean a person could be diagnosed after two weeks of losing someone.
The author points out that up to 20% of people do develop depression after grieving but still- most people do not,
I fear that such a change will medicalise grief and that giving a person who is grieving antidpressants is not as helpful as letting grief take its natural course- however painful that is for a while.
