Nutrition Essentials for Mental Health: Strategies to Enhance Mood and Well-Being



If we are what we eat, then beyond the mind-body connection there’s also a food-mind-body connection. This recording will explore the latest nutritional research to inform psychotherapeutic practice and how diet can affect mood, as well as the links between depression, inflammation, and cognitive function. Ethics and scope of practice, why there is no one right diet for everyone, the application of the food mood diary and analysis, engaging and motivating your client for change, specific dietary nutrient and herbal protocols for depression anxiety, insomnia, cognitive health and PTSD, and alternatives to psychotropics.

You’ll explore how to:

  • Provide your clients with a comprehensive overview of the basic principles of good nutrition, food preparation, and mindful eating
  • Assess the conflicting research and differing recommendations about nutritional practices and alternatives to medicines that foster mental health
  • Determine the benefits, risks, and deficits of a variety of popular diet types, from carnivore to vegan, depending on the needs of a given client
  • Foundational nutrients for mental health
