Support & Wellness - The University of Chicago Kovler Diabetes Center

Support & Wellness

At the Kovler Diabetes Center, individuals and families get support that helps them achieve better self-care, family life, and diabetes management.

Life’s stresses can be doubly difficult for individuals with diabetes as well as for their families. Depression, anxiety and the challenges of diabetes management can occur in families that are overwhelmed. These conditions can increase the need for additional clinical services or interventions that may be preventable with routine behavioral health and wellness services. Through one of the many services we provide including our Psychosocial Program, families affected by diabetes can now have a listening ear that will assist them with integrating diabetes management into practical everyday family life.
