Pandemic Grief Scale

Pandemic Grief Scale

Definition

The Pandemic Grief Scale (PGS) is a self-report mental health screener of dysfunctional grief due to a COVID-19 loss. Because losing someone to COVID-19 can be particularly challenging, the PGS was developed to help clinicians and researchers efficiently identify cases of individuals impaired by this form of loss.
