AbstractSickle cell disease (SCD) is a group of inherited blood disorders that cause severe pain, reduce life expectancy and require significant self-management, but are often associated with stigma and discrimination. This chapter provides an overview of evidence about psychological aspects of sickle cell disease, including inheritance, screening and testing, managing painful episodes, and adolescent transitions.
