Project to Understand Reactions to Loss

Our NIMH research on bereavement attempts to understand the different patterns of outcomes people experience in response to loss.

Research Study

How long does the study last?

The entire study spans several years. Participants visit our offices at Columbia University's Teachers College twice during the initial phase of data collection, approximately 2-4 months after their loss, then again approximately 14 months after the loss. There is also a third phase of data collection, approximately 25 months after the loss that can be conducted in our offices or over the phone, which ever is most convenient for participants.
