Psychological problems can be experienced by patients with type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (DM), especially related to the long-term treatment. Therefore, they need coping strategies such as spirituality to become resilient. This research aimed to analyze the correlation between spiritual well-being and resilience in type 2 DM patients. It applied quantitative research with cross sectional approach. A total of 124 type 2 DM patients were involved and selected by systematic random sampling technique. Data collection was conducted by 2 questionnaires: Spiritual Well-Being Scale (SWBS) and The Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC). The median score of spiritual well-being was 78 (min-max= 62-108). Meanwhile the median value of resilience was 72 (min-max= 42-100). The Spearman Correlation test showed a positive moderate correlation between spiritual well-being and resilience (p value = 0.001, r = 0.446, α = 0.05). The higher the value of spiritual well-being, the better the level of resilience of patients with Type 2 DM. Assessment and improvement of spiritual well-being can be a means to enhance the resilience in type 2 DM patients.
