Support Nutritional Psychology


Nutritional psychology (NP) is the growing scientific field exploring the relationship between nutrition and all aspects of psychological functioning. The expansion of this field is closing the gap around the diet-mental health relationship in our healthcare systems.

The Center for Nutritional Psychology (CNP) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 2015. Our mission is to support the development of NP by providing education, resources, and an advocacy platform geared towards building a nutritional component within mental healthcare.

Today, we are proud to sponsor continuing education in nutritional psychology, offering the first course (NP 110) in a next-generation curriculum and certification program. We provide access to five carefully curated online libraries with 3,000+ links to NP research, as well as Diet-Mental Health Break videos and numerous other free resources available for your benefit.

We need your support. If you share in our vision of a nutritional component in mental healthcare, if you find nutritional psychology useful, please consider making a donation today. Thank you.

CNP is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. All donations, as well as proceeds from the membership, courses, and other CNP programs go directly towards the maintenance and development of Nutritional Psychology resources.
