Petition: Emotional and mental health support should be part of diabetes care


Diabetes is relentless, there is never a break.

This can have a serious impact on emotional, mental and psychological wellbeing. But, too often, support is missing.

Together, we can change this.

We’re calling on health services in the UK to create national standards for diabetes emotional and mental health support so:

  • Everyone is asked how they are feeling as part of every diabetes appointment.
  • A mental health professional with knowledge of diabetes is part of every diabetes care team.

Sign the petition today - let's make emotional and mental health support a part of everyone's diabetes care.
