Nutrition and mental health has become an emerging and exciting topic. Many healthcare professionals are seeking evidence-based research and practical tips on how to promote mental health wellbeing through nutrition. There is an increasing interest for nutrition professionals to promote mental health as part of their work and practice. 

In this session, join Kelly Matheson and Christina Seely, dietitians working in mental health settings, as they share practical insights on how to support clients living with significant mental illness. The first half of the session will be information on common nutritional issues seen in these populations, and current interventions and challenges. The second half will be an interactive group discussion, where participants are encouraged to review real-life case studies, discuss challenging situations and ask questions. Christina and Kelly will also be sharing a collection of their favourite professional and patient resources through an online database, made available to participants attending the session.
