46 Ss infected with HIV were followed up, for recording psychiatric morbidity, if any, before & after they learned their HIV status. Psychiatric morbidity after diagnoses were revealed included major depression & adjustment disorders which, in most cases, could be managed with psychological counselling (the S who developed major depression later, committed suicide). This preliminary study suggests the benefits of including psychiatric management as part of the general care of HIV individuals.
