Course description

Patients with severe mental illness have a significantly reduced life span than the rest of the population. This group also has excess of poor nutrition and lifestyle behaviours which are related both to the illness and may be influenced by medication. The webinar will focus on the dietary factors and uncover the recent research behind Mediterranean diet in depression and emerging science of the role of gut-brain-microbiota axis as the mechanism behind modulation of behaviour via dietary change. The presenter then proposes an outpatient based coaching style nutritional intervention model to implement personalised nutrition education in day to day clinical practice.
