National Diabetes Week 2020

This year, National Diabetes Week runs from 12 – 18 July and the focus will be on supporting the emotional and mental health of people living with diabetes.

Heads Up on Diabetes and Mental Health

Did you know that people living with diabetes can make up to 180 added decisions each day covering everything from food to medication to exercise and more just to stay well and healthy?

Mentally and emotionally that is a lot of stress to deal with.


Research shows that managing the daily challenges of diabetes can lead to anxiety, distress and depression for one in three people living with the condition. That’s why this National Diabetes Week, we’ll be working to:

  • Raise awareness of the mental and emotional challenges of managing diabetes
  • Highlight the services and support available to the diabetes community
  • Draw attention to gaps in diabetes service and care

Above all we’ll be working with our community, so you know you’re not alone. We are here to help and support you.

Help us spread the word
