Our Mission

Towards the future of mental healthcare...

We are working to define, develop, and promote the field of Nutritional Psychology. This field 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.

Since 2008, we’ve been developing core concepts and tools that inform this innovative field. If you share our vision and wish to learn more, we invite you to contribute to the movement.
