Vicki Nicolas, Honours student in Psychology at Griffith University, Queensland.

Seeking people living with type 2 diabetes over 18 years of age with no current severe mental health conditions or cognitive impairment who are willing to participate in an online survey.

The research will assess the implications of stigma and the psychological associations that are commonly present in individuals with type 2 diabetes. The aim of this research is to identify psychological processes that are likely to contribute to this population’s emotional experiences and then develop appropriate intervention programs for people with type 2 diabetes who experience diabetes-related stigma and anxiety that will assist with maintaining self-care behaviours and adherence to diabetes medications.

The survey will take 15-20 minutes to complete and is anonymous; no identifying information will be collected.  Click here to participate in the research study.
