They discussed how physical health, social settings, and human behavior are connected to preventing disease and sustaining good health.

15% of patients experienced moderate to severe anxiety, 3% experienced moderate to pronounced hopelessness, and 8% experienced moderate to severe depression. Patients with cirrhosis had the highest prevalence of all three and a lower quality of life. More patients with cirrhosis than with liver disease without cirrhosis perceived stigmatization, which affected their self-perception. Additionally, more than one third of the patients chose not to tell others about their liver disease. The findings emphasize the need for increased awareness of mental health issues and the prevention of liver disease patients from being discriminated against. To a large extent, the research projects included in our review were minor student projects defined and limited by the topic of the course.
