RE: T1 and depression….

Depression is a problem with T1s. Most rise to the challenge and learn to live with it. But some don’t. The incidence of suicide is 3 times higher for T1 youth (under 25) than it is for the rest of the population in that age group. My 27 year old T1 neighbour was one of those numbers. She committed suicide 9 months ago. We will never understand just why she did it, but T1 and not being able to manage it was certainly an issue. She got lots of mental health support, but it wasn’t enough. Very sad.
