Essentials of Mental Health Nutrition
The course reviews the revolution in mental health treatment that recognizes the specific role of diet and nutrition in mental health. Depression is a disease of inflammation, not chemical deficits in the brain. Up to 50% of people diagnosed with psychosis are gluten-sensitive, most people with fibromyalgia have a history of childhood trauma and people who are not biochemically vegetarians yet eat as vegetarians are vulnerable to developing anxiety and panic.
Yet, mental health professionals rarely know about nutrition, and nutritional professionals often know little about mental health and patients often do not realize that there are alternatives to pharmaceuticals and that by making dietary changes they can improve their well-being.
This course provides an overview to this gap while providing specific, actionable interventions.
Upon successful completion, enrollees will receive a certificate. Please find more information on the certificate below.

“If food is medicine, what do we eat to heal? Beyond conventional nutrition dogma, Leslie Korn's sophisticated, researched, and truly holistic perspective is urgently needed. There are few resources that I can confidently point to for life-changing support when it comes to healing mood and cognition. I couldn't be more thrilled to add The Good Mood Kitchen to the top of my list.”
