Community Interventions in Diabetes and Depression
Long-term conditions are increasing rapidly across the globe. In particular, diabetes is becoming more prevalent and is often associated with poor mental health.
We have established the first consortium, the Community Intervention Network for Diabetes and Depression (CoIN-DD), to focus systematically on developing ways of tackling these conditions in order to improve quality of life.
Our projects include:
Long-term conditions and mental health in Sub-Saharan Africa:
mainstreaming community-based practices.
Language Matters in the UK: the impact of language on the emotional well-being of people with diabetes
Addressing stigma in rural Kenya: talking about language matters in people with diabetes and depression
What community practices currently exist to tackle mental health and diabetes in African countries and how effective are they?
