[’Complicated Grief’ Goes Beyond Depression][1] Researchers estimate that 10 percent to 15 percent of the surviving relatives of people who die naturally experience complicated grief, Prigerson said. She said people who lose someone they were emotionally dependent on are at greatest risk.

The next DSM-V will be published in 2012.
