Health & Wellbeing Workshops

If you are a parent of a child living with diabetes, why not register your interest for upcoming Health & Wellbeing Workshops during Autumn 2022?
Mental health is an extremely important and often forgotten aspect of diabetes and diabetes care. Living with diabetes can be burdensome for those living with this condition, and for those who care for them. Parents of children under 13 years old with diabetes may experience very different challenges than parents of adolescents with diabetes, and those who live with diabetes themselves might have very different needs than their respective carers.
All those living with diabetes are at higher risk of mental health challenges, and the COVID-19 pandemic implies additional toll. Therefore, it is extremely important to talk about mental health, share common experiences, and hear from others about how can we live with diabetes to the fullest.
The sessions are limited to 15 participants, to allow for interaction and conversation amongst the group. These workshops will take place subject to funding. Register your interest, and beginning again from September 2022, we will keep you informed as dates become scheduled.
Topics for discussion during sessions are:
* The burden of diabetes and its diagnosis and how to deal with it
*Age- dependent needs of people living with diabetes
* Mental health toll: diabetes distress, burnout and more
* Living with diabetes vs. letting diabetes control your life
* And much more
The workshops are facilitated by
Dr Kate Gajewska
Clinical Psychologist, Advocacy & Research Manager
