Friends, family remember Ohio school shooting victims

By Moni Basu

Ohio School Shooting Victim Daniel Parmertor(CNN) — In December, Domenick Iammarino drove the 30 miles or so from his home in Solon, Ohio, to deliver Christmas gifts for his grandchildren. For Danny, Iammarino picked out an athletic top and pants.

The teenager loved to ski and lamented to his grandfather the mildness of this winter in Chardon, the unofficial snow capital of Ohio.

If only Iammarino could hear Danny’s voice again, see the smile that always slipped from his lips.

Instead Iammarino prepared Tuesday to attend a vigil in Danny’s honor.

Daniel Parmertor, 16, was one of three students who died in a shooting at Chardon High School the day before. Russell King Jr., 17, was declared brain dead early Tuesday and Demetrius Hewlin died Tuesday morning, his family said in a statement distributed by MetroHealth hospitals in Cleveland.

Grief A DisorderWhen does a broken heart become a diagnosis?

In a bitter skirmish over the definition of depression, a new report contends that a proposed change to the diagnosis would characterize grieving as a disorder and greatly increase the number of people treated for it. 

The criteria for depression are being reviewed by the American Psychiatric Association, which is finishing work on the fifth edition of its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or D.S.M., the first since 1994. The manual is the standard reference for the field, shaping treatment and insurance decisions, and its revisions will affect the lives of millions of people for years to come.

In coming months, as the manual is finalized, outside experts will intensify scrutiny of its finer points, many of which are deeply contentious in the field. A controversy erupted last week over the proposed tightening of the definition of autism, possibly sharply reducing the number of people who receive the diagnosis. Psychiatrists say current efforts to revise the manual are shaping up as the most contentious ever.
