AbstractTwenty-eight asymptomatic relatives from 7 Chinese families with Huntington's disease (HD) received psychosocial assessment. One third of these subjects (n = 9) had symptoms of anxiety and depression that warranted a Present State Examination (PSE) diagnosis. One quarter of these subjects (n = 8) would contemplate suicide if their predictive testing indicated a high risk of having the disease. This suicidal risk was associated with a PSE diagnosis of depression and a stress-coping repertoire with a high proportion of coping strategies of the avoidance type at the time of interview. Early and close liaison with these subjects for the detection of mental symptoms and provision of counselling on a balanced and positive coping style is essential.
