Abstract

Investigations of the grief reactions experienced by families when a relative develops a serious mental illness have been hampered by the lack of an appropriate instrument to measure such reactions. The authors devised the Mental Illness Version of the Texas Inventory of Grief, adapted from the Texas Revised Inventory of Grief, to assess family members' initial and present feelings about their relative's loss of mental health. A test of the instrument with 58 family members of patients with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder revealed a surprisingly low level of initial grief but higher levels of present grief.
