National Diabetes Week 2021 runs from 11 – 17 July

In 2021, we are continuing our Heads Up campaign which focuses on the mental and emotional health of people living with diabetes. This year, the spotlight is on diabetes stigma and mental health.

More than 4 in 5 people with diabetes have experienced diabetes stigma.

Nearly 50 per cent of people with diabetes have experienced mental health challenges in the last 12 months.

Stigma affects all aspects of life for people with diabetes, including their mental health and wellbeing. 

People experience diabetes stigma when they are blamed for having diabetes, while managing diabetes such as injecting insulin in public and when they experience the affects and complications of diabetes such as low blood sugar.

This National Diabetes Week, let’s have a conversation about the real impact diabetes stigma can have on a person’s mental and emotional wellbeing. 

Help raise awareness about the campaign by spreading the word.

Heads Together Live online forum


Join us on Facebook live for the Heads Together forum on Tuesday 13 July from 7pm – 8.30pm. It will be Australia’s biggest online discussion about mental health and diabetes stigma. Register to attend on the Facebook event page.

Mental health first aid is the help provided to someone who is developing a mental health problem, has a worsening of an existing mental health problem or is in a mental health crisis.
