Participate in these surveys and help others living with diabetes 30 March 2015 D-Stress â€“ a 20-30 minute survey Living with diabetes and managing its everyday hassles can be demanding. Dealing with these demands can cause negative effects on a personâ€™s state of mind leading to stress, anxiety and in some cases, depression. As a solution, The Black Dog Institute and the University of New South Wales have developed d-Stress to support people living with diabetes and help improve their mental health. Features of the online self-help tool include: â€¢ tips and strategies for balancing the demands of diabetes with other important life goals; â€¢ strategies for managing worry and low mood; â€¢ freely available 24/7 via the internet on desk-top computers, mobile phones and iPads; â€¢ available to you for 7 weeks to use whenever you want. If the current study is successful, The Black Dog Institute is considering adding the tool to their myCompass program â€“ a program designed to help people with mild-to-moderate symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression, to improve and manage their mental health.

Miles Study 2 â€“ a 45-60 minute survey Meanwhile the Diabetes MILES Study 2 explores the management and impact of diabetes for long-term empowerment and success of adults with type 1 or type 2 diabetes.

Conducted by The Australian Centre for Behavioural Research in Diabetes (ACBRD), a partnership between Diabetes Australia (Victoria) and Deakin University, the online study takes approximately 45-60 minutes and each entry goes into the draw to win 1 of 3 iPad minis, and the chance to contribute to future MILES studies!
