Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease that cannot be completely cured and greatly affects the patient's quality of life. The incidence of DM continues to increase both in the world and in Indonesia, so far more research has been about the problem of DM clinics so that more research is needed on the quality of life. In addition, low quality of life and psychological problems can exacerbate metabolic disorders, either directly through a stress harmonic reaction or indirectly through complications. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between depression and quality of life of type 2 diabetes mellitus sufferers at the West Kabaena Health Center, Bombana Regency. This type of research is quantitative, with a cross sectional study design. The sample determination is done by using purposive sampling technique with a sample size of 35 respondents. The relationship test was performed using the Continuity Correction test with a significance level of α <0.05.
