A Nutritional Component to Mental Healthcare by 2030

There is a crucial need to deliver better education to both the public and clinicians about the role of diet and nutrients in sustaining mental health (Huang 2019). CNP is the developer of the first university-based, accredited curriculum in Nutritional Psychology. The Certificate in Nutritional Psychology began in 2008 and evolved over a 12 year period to include a 7-course program dedicated to providing mental health professionals, educators, dietitians, health coaches, and counselors with formal curriculum in Nutritional Psychology. This long-standing program is currently being updated to account for the vast increase of information in the field. The first course in the next-generation NP curriculum, Introduction to Nutritional Psychology Methods, will be available through CNP starting March of 2021.
