Coping With A Child's Death, From Dr. Gail Saltz (WATCH)

Dealing with the death of a child is at the top of the list of traumatic and stressful things a person can deal with. Psychiatrist Dr. Gail Saltz told me that parents are at a high risk for depression and suicide after a loss occurs when she joined me on Mondays With Marlo. This is why it's so important to seek treatment and invest in your other children, and your partner. Talk to others who have gone through the same kind of loss, and be sure to communicate with your partner about what has gone on to safeguard your relationship.
