Description

ETHICS The Mind and Body Connection: Mental health and diabetes (6 CEs)

Did you know people living with type 1 or type 2 diabetes are at increased risk for depression, anxiety and eating disorders or that rates of depression across the lifespan are 2 times greater for people with diabetes than in the general population?

Whether it be type 1 diabetes where the body does not make any insulin at all or type 2 diabetes when the pancreas makes some insulin but not enough, a diabetes diagnosis can be a life altering event.

Much like caring for your body, caring for your mind is as important to living a healthy life. When diabeted is left untreated, mental health conditions like depression and anxiety can worsen symptoms associated with diabetes. Untreated mental health issues may have the same worsening effect when there is existing diabetes. This course focuses on how diabetes and mental health are connected. Both acts prohibit discrimination against people with disabilities in the workplace. In this course, we will target the following objectives:

  • Describe major challenges of living with diabetes that may be the focus of mental health treatment.

  • Compare treatments and therapies.

  • Integrate general knowledge of diabetes to mental health care of people with diabetes.

  • Present supportive terminology to interactions with people with diabetes and with other healthcare professionals.

  • Address cultural competency by highlighting disparities and differences amongst people living with type 1 or type 2 diabetes.

Joseph Ingram, JD, MA, MSW has a broad range of social work, HR, compliance, legal, and policy experience in various industries and sectors, including local, state, and federal government.
