Advice given through the peer support program is provided by JDRF volunteers who have been affected by a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes. These volunteers are not medical professionals or professional counsellors. They provide emotional support only and are unable to give medical advice.

While JDRF endeavours to provide users of its peer support program with accurate and helpful information, this support program is not a substitute for health and medical advice from a qualified health professional. Diagnosis and treatment of a clinical condition can only be undertaken by a qualified mental health professional. Users of this program should always seek the advice of a qualified health professional with any questions they have regarding their health or a medical condition.

If you access the peer support program, you agree that JDRF and its respective directors, officers, employees, volunteers, members, agents and consultants are in no way liable to you, or to any third party claiming through you, for any loss or damage whatsoever (including special, indirect or consequential damages) resulting from the use of the program.

If you or someone you are concerned about needs help, please contact Lifeline on 13 11 14.
