Education Description

Mental health professionals are keenly aware that there are many factors and domains that influence psychological wellness. We often specialize in one or a few domains and leave the other areas to “specialists.” One area where this is often true is the area of nutrition. Some may feel that nutrition is outside of the mental health therapist’s scope and should only be addressed by a nutritionist. This workshop will not be a replacement for a trained nutritionist. It will provide a basic program of education and intervention that any mental health professional can provide to their patients to improve brain health through “macronutrient remediation.” Participants will be presented with a set of tools that they can provide to patients that will empower them to improve their patient’s brain health through nutritional intentionality.

Target Audience
  • Counselors
