Abstract

Depressive symptoms are very common in patients with diabetes, and this comorbidity negatively influences the patients’ medical outcomes and mortality. The burden of depression is intensified by its chronic course trajectory, as a substantial number of patients show a relapse of their symptoms after having recovered. These high relapse rates warrant identifying psychological treatments that reduce depressive symptoms not only directly after the intervention, but that also ensure the maintenance of well-being in the long term.
