Diabetes is an endocrine and metabolic disease, which is caused by insufficient secretion or poor insulin action. Diabetes is a lifelong disease with a high incidence. This paper provides mental health information of patients with diabetes by means of standardized psychological measurement tools, taking into account the patients' natural conditions and disease characteristics, including family, education level, medical history, weight, psychological state and other factors. Psychological effects were evaluated and combined on the basis of conventional treatment and their effects were compared. The results of statistical analysis in this paper showed that the change of anxiety score after psychotherapy had significant difference (P <0.01), and the depression score after psychotherapy was significantly lower than that before psychotherapy (P <0.01). The results showed that psychotherapy intervention can be combined with antidepressant treatment to reduce depressive symptoms, relieve depressive mood, reduce psychological stress and improve blood glucose metabolism. Therefore, it can effectively reduce the suffering of patients, increase the confidence to cure the disease, improve the quality of life, and reduce depression to varying degrees.
