General/Patient Advocacy Form

    General Advocacy

    Do you want your mental healthcare providers to be equipped to support your Diet-Mental Health Relationship? Are you generally interested in the continued development of Nutritional Psychology? The Center for Nutritional Psychology (CNP) is advocating for a nutritional component to mental healthcare. We are leading the effort to build Nutritional Psychology curriculum, methodology, and advocacy, and will make your voice heard.

    Nutritional Psychology (NP) is the field of study that examines the relationship between dietary intake patterns and psychological, cognitive, behavioral, cognitive-interoceptive, perceptual, and psychosocial functioning. It seeks to expand our understanding of the Diet-Mental Health Relationship (DMHR), and help support improvements in mood, behavior, and mental health. Nutritional Psychology is informed by the fields of Nutrition, Psychology, and Education. We make it our business, and our passion, to understand the Diet-Mental Health Relationship and develop ways to use NP to inform a new model of mental healthcare.

    By completing and submitting this form, you indicate that you support the development of a nutritional component to mental healthcare, and that you feel you would benefit from mental healthcare providers being trained in the DMHR.
