We are working to define, develop, and promote the field of Nutritional Psychology. Nutritional Psychology examines the relationship between our daily dietary intake patterns and our mood, behavior, and mental health.
We believe the future of mental healthcare includes a nutritional component, and are dedicated to fostering the development of this interdisciplinary field.
CNP believes that all psychologists and mental health professionals should have formal training in the science of how food affects mood, behavior, and mental health, and that Nutritional Psychology be considered a core concept for psychologists and mental health professionals going forward.
CNP was created to serve as an online resource for anyone seeking to understand the role that diet plays in affecting mood and mental health. In addition to defining the field, CNP’s mission is providing mental health professionals, psychologists, counselors, dietitians, health coaches, physicians, researchers, educators, and interested individuals access to research, information, and curriculum in the emerging field of Nutritional Psychology.
CNP serves as an online platform for the development, collaboration, and advancement of the field of Nutritional Psychology.
