Consolidating Research in Nutritional Psychology: The CNP Library Membership

Nutritional Psychology is the area of study that examines the psychological, behavioral, cognitive, sensory-perceptual, interoceptive, and psychosocial elements informing the Diet-Mental Health Relationship. As knowledge supporting our understanding of this relationship continues to grow, an increased need to unify these findings exists. While formal education and training in this area have been largely absent for mental health and allied health professionals, The Center for Nutritional Psychology has taken initiative to develop this area of study and is consistently working to consolidate the world’s research regarding the DMHR.

CNP’s ‘Research Library Membership’ contains the first ‘living’ and evolving database containing links to nearly 3,000 interdisciplinary, multinational scientific research studies informing our understanding of the Diet-Mental Health Relationship. While CNP’s public website contains five curated research libraries containing links to over 45 research categories in nutritional psychology, the CNP Research Library Membership provides educators, students, professionals, and advocates with access to CNP’s full scope of study links informing the field of nutritional psychology.

The CNP Library Membership also provides individuals with the opportunity to join a like-minded community, and engage with those who support and believe in the importance of incorporating a nutritional component into mental healthcare moving forward.
