Have you or your team made significant positive changes to the emotional wellbeing of people with diabetes and/or their families and carers?
This category recognises initiatives that deliver emotional wellbeing support for children, young people, emerging adults and adults, with diabetes of all ages and/or their families and carers. However, it can also include initiatives that improve quality of life, such as making clinics more welcoming or accessible, or providing services outside the clinic, such as support for health choirs or sporting activity.
Initiatives are not limited to people with ‘diagnosable/ classifiable’ psychological problems and can include (but are not limited to):
- Overall life coping skills
- Eating disorders
- Helping people live with diabetes, alongside other conditions
- Any illness that requires long-term condition support, which might also include people with diabetes.
- Improvements in quality of life
