The Bereaved and the Stigma of Suicide.
Solomon, Mark I.
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v13 n4 p377-87 1982-83
Investigated the relationship between stigma and potentially stigmatizing events by interviewing 90 people bereaved by suicide. Some (N=28) felt stigmatized; 62 subjects did not. Stigmatized respondents were significantly more likely to have encountered gossip and to have had a negative reaction to the conduct of police officials. (Author/JAC)
