Abstract: 

Aim and Background: The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of treatment based on acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) on depression and mental health in patients with diabetes.
Methods and Materials: Experimental research method was used in this study. Statistical population consisted of diabetic patients from diabetes center in Isfahan, Iran. A total of 30 patients were randomly selected and assigned to either experimental or control groups. Beck Depression Inventory (BDI II) was completed before and after the intervention. Experimental group received 8 training sessions of ACT, with 120 minutes duration, in Diabetes Charitable Center of Isfahan. The control group received no training at all.
Findings: Results showed that ACT significantly increased scores on the BDI II compared to the control group (P<0.001).
Conclusions: ACT may be considered to be an effective intervention approach for treating depression in diabetic patients.
