Introduction: Depression is common in people with coronary heart disease (CHD), affecting approximately a fifth of individuals following an acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Objectives: The main objective of the study is to find the Effectiveness of Pre Counselling Regarding Cardiac Procedures. Material and methods: This descriptive study was conducted in Jinnah Hospital Lahore during 2019 to 2020. We reviewed the evidence to assess the effects of adding psychological treatments (talking therapies) to usual care for people with coronary heart disease (CHD; narrowing of the arteries supplying the heart) compared with people receiving usual care. Results: There were 200 patients which were selected for this study. From these 200 patients there were 96 female and 104 males. The mean age range was 41.2 ± 12.4years. Table 01 shows the demographic values of all selected patients. Conclusion: It is concluded that psychological interventions did not reduce mortality (any cause), or the risk cardiac surgery or having another heart attack. Psychological interventions reduced the risk of cardiac deaths and reduced participant‐reported symptoms of depression, anxiety, and stress.
