Exploring Mental Health and Diabetes Through Case Studies

Earn FREE CE Credits and Learn How to Care for People with Diabetes

The American Diabetes Association® is making strides to increase experts in the field and ensure support for the psychosocial challenges faced as we continue to help people with diabetes and their families thrive.


These asynchronous case studies focus on how behavioral health professionals can help people from different cultures and backgrounds manage diabetes. This program includes interactive modules with several patient videos and allows learners to practice treating people with diabetes. This program will allow learners to:

  1. Identify mental health factors influencing diabetes care.
  2. Analyze appropriate personalized treatment plans for people with diabetes.
  3. Integrate behavioral health best practices into clinical scenarios using collaborative care models, team-based approaches, and effective communication strategies.
