    Hi there, Diabetes UK have just launched a campaign to improve emotional and mental health support for people living with diabetes. The relentless nature of dia,betes can have a serious impact on emotional, mental and psychological wellbeing. But, too often, support is missing. I've signed this petition to call for national standards for diabetes emotional and mental health support. Please join me. https://campaigns.diabetes.org.uk/page/41825/petition/1?ea.tracking.id=ES

    I don't seem to suffer from diabetes it's just something I have and something I live with.
    Who is expected to give this support and who and how will it be paid for and is it really necessary for every diabetic?
    I don't want it but the questions are genuine.
