CNP has been developing the field of Nutritional Psychology (NP) since 2008. We are consolidating research that informs the field, advocating for the use of NP in the future of both education and mental healthcare, and developing tools for mental health professionals and nutritionists to better support individuals in making positive contributions to their mental health through diet and nutrient intake.
The CNP administrative team's mission is to provide the support structures necessary to develop the field of Nutritional Psychology.
