Person-Centered Care for People with Diabetes and Comorbid Mental Illness

Join the American Diabetes Association on Tuesday, September 14th, at 3 p.m. EDT for a live, one-hour panel discussion about how to care for people dealing with both diabetes and mental illness such as anxiety or depression. The session is a part of the "Hands On: Tips to Improve Diabetes Care" webinar series available exclusively to ADA members and offering CE credit.


In this webinar, speakers will take a closer look at how to provide patient-centered care to people dealing with diabetes and comorbid mental illness, including discussing tools for screening and referral as well as how to reduce stigma around mental illness and encourage hope within patients who deal with it. Presenters will share five actionable tips for improving care related to diabetes and comorbid mental illness before the webinar concludes with a live Q&A session.


The “Hands On: Tips to Improve Diabetes Care” series is presented by ADA’s Behavioral Medicine & Psychology, Diabetes in Primary Care, and Diabetes Technology Interest Groups through the generous support of the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust.
