Welcome to our introductory article on Diabetes Mellitus. We are lucky to be joined by Diabetes Educator, Ann Morris, for a series of educational and informative articles about living with diabetes. Ann and I formed a successful partnership at St John of God Healthcare around seven years ago. I'm happy to say that Ann is a wholistic pracititioner who works from a biopsychosocial perspective, referring people regularly to mental health practitioners like myself, to assist her patients who maybe experiencing complications such as diabetes burnout, depression and anxiety. I'm proud to collaborate with her in practice, and also on these articles. We hope you find them useful.
