03 Jul National Diabetes Week – 2021
National Diabetes Week 2021 runs from 11 – 17 July
In 2021, we are continuing our Heads Up campaign which focuses on the mental and emotional health of people living with diabetes. This year, the spotlight is on diabetes stigma and mental health.
- More than 4 in 5 people with diabetes have experienced diabetes stigma.
- Nearly 50 per cent of people with diabetes have experienced mental health challenges in the last 12 months.
Stigma affects all aspects of life for people with diabetes, including their mental health and wellbeing.
