What Is It?

The idea of UNW1ND was conceived when we realized how mental health has been such a huge but invisible part of living with Type 1 diabetes. With this project, we would like to acknowledge the missing piece of the puzzle in our diabetes care management system i.e., Mental Health, and establish how important it is to talk about it. Both Type 1 diabetes and Mental Health are wound up together and thus, we need to UNW1ND them to figure out how to take care of both of them simultaneously. There is a necessity to make Type 1 diabetes and Mental Health visible and start the work to destigmatize the myths associated with them.
