Workshop strives toward a more holistic approach to diabetes management

As part of a region-wide strategy to tackle western Sydney's diabetes hotspot, Western Sydney Primary Health Network (WSPHN) and the Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD) continue to work together to support prevention and management of the condition.

Studies indicate that 40% or more of people with diabetes also have significant levels of psychological distress and 33% will have symptoms of clinical depression*.

On Thursday, 4th May the Western Sydney Diabetes Initiative will host a workshop for local health professionals focusing on the relationship between diabetes and mental health. The workshop aims to gain perspectives from consumers and clinicians about the challenges of managing both diabetes and psychological distress and opportunities for a more holistic approach to care.
