Nutrition & Mental Health Training for Medical Doctors & Psychiatrists
Does nutrition have anything to do with good mental health? What’s the science behind individual diets for mental health? How should medical doctor and psychiatrists decide where to start with recommendations? What nutritional advice should these clinicians give to patients suffering from anxiety, depression, and impulse control amongst other mental and behavioral issues? The answers to all these questions lie in the nutrition and mental health training program offered by Academy for Addiction and Mental Health Nutrition.
The connection between mental health and adequate nutrition has been an established reality for quite some time now; however, the tools and expertise for making clinicians adept of providing nutritional information to patients for ensuring good mental health have been recently developed. The nutrition and mental health training program by the Academy for Addiction and Mental Health Nutrition intend to provide clinicians with a transparent, holistic, and integrative approach to understand mental health nutrition and how the right recommendations can make a difference in the lives of their clients.
Clinicians often find themselves confronting their clients’ concerns on different levels – concerns that are compounded with the availability of so many diets, supplements, and programs – finding the next nutritional solution becomes a big problem. And this is where this program educates clinicians so that they can identify and understand the underlying causes of their clients’ mental health concern and recommend them nutritional support that can help them make significant amends.
