The ‘Diabetes and Emotional Health’ practical guide aims to support health professionals to identify, address and communicate about emotional problems during consultations with adults with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. It is complemented by a toolkit containing summary cards of several chapters, questionnaires, and leaflets for people with diabetes. This practical guide is the 2nd edition (2020) of the ‘Diabetes and Emotional Health’ handbook, which was published first in Australia in 2016.
In 2019, ‘Diabetes and Emotional Health’ was adapted by Diabetes UK for UK health professionals. A copy is available here.
The practical guide (previously, handbook) was developed in collaboration with, published and funded by the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS). The NDSS is an initiative of the Australian Government administered with the assistance of Diabetes Australia.
