Main outcome and results: Of the relatives, 51{\%} and 69{\%} reported anxiety and depression, respectively, as well as significantly impaired quality-of-life compared to normal reference populations. Regression analysis revealed that up to 20{\%} of the variance in depression and anxiety scores could be explained by the CRASH 2 Mortality prediction. Conclusions: The majority of the relatives had severely impaired quality-of-life and symptoms of anxiety and depression during the patient's NICU stay. Future research is required to explore stressors and evaluate effects of psychological intervention in the acute setting.",
