Background and Aim: Diabetes mellitus is a prevalent chronic disease in the world, which threatens mental health. Various factors, including improvement of religious faith and increasing self-care efficacy, are effective in the treatment and control of the complications of the disease. The present study aimed at studying of the role of trust in God and self– efficacy in the mental health of type П diabetics. Materials and Methods: The present descriptive– analytical and correlational study was done on 204 type П diabetics selected through systematic randomized method. The patients' trust in God, self– efficacy, and mental health were assessed by means of "trust in God" questionnaires DMSES and GHQ-28. The obtained data was analysed by means of SPSS software (version 13), Pearson's correlation coefficient, t-test, and multiple regression analysis at the significant level α=0.05. Results: It was found that there was no significant difference between the two genders regarding trust in God, self-efficacy, and mental health at the level P<0.05. Besides, according to Pearson's coefficient correlation the relationship between trust in God and self-efficacy (P<0.001, r=0.45), between mental health and self-efficacy (P<0.001, r=0.44) was significant. Regression analysis revealed that trust in God and self-Efficacy justifies 35% of mental health variance in diabetics and are powerful prognosticators of the illness. Conclusion: Regarding the increase in the prevalence of diabetes mellitus, the disease is one of the notorious health problems in the world. Thus, intervention aimed at increasing religious faith and self-efficacy in order to do self-care activities will be useful in decreasing diabetic complications.
