Find Support

With the number of people diagnosed with diabetes growing every year, information about managing diabetes, raising awareness and providing diabetes support in our community is vital if people are to stay well.

 

Support groups hold an important place in the lives of many people with diabetes.  Research has shown that people who attend support groups are more confident about their diabetes, are less likely to suffer with depression or stress - in part because they have the knowledge to better manage their diabetes.

 

Support groups offer the opportunity to meet others with the same diagnosis, to gain more information about their condition, to learn coping and management skills and to build friendships with like minded people.

 

There are currently over 40 support groups in Queensland for both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
