Abstract: “Our focus is on diabetes but in order to address the holistic components associated with a balanced life, we need to address other potential affects.  The mind holds our life experiences and is central to our emotional and spiritual health. It is connected to our feelings and emotions of the heart and spirit. Certain studies have shown that treating mental health disorders like depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder are significant in diabetes management, especially among Indigenous cultures.”
