One of the most common chronic diseases of our time is type 1 diabetes (T1D) which is not only a threat to the patient's life, but also a factor affecting the quality of life. Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is accompanied by early disability, disability, leads to the development of severe complications and a decrease in the patient's resource reserves. Analysis of the literature shows that the issues of studying T1D concern mainly the somatic state of patients. There are very few works devoted to assessing the psyche in T1D, they are scattered, not deep enough and systematized, which is due to the complexity and polymodality of the subject of study. This article analyses the severity of disorders of the psychoemotional status in children with T1D. The psychological characteristics of children were revealed depending on the stage of T1D.
