Those with mental health diagnoses can have significantly higher rates of physical illness. These can lead to significantly poorer health outcomes, reduced quality of life and potentially a significant effect on life-expectancy. In a world where we are overwhelmed with nutritional information this study day will focus on the diverse nutritional needs within mental health and look at how nutritional health can have a positive impact on physical health and overall well being. Led by Dr Francis Felix, this course hopes to explore current evidence base around nutrition in mental health and look at ways this can be implemented in practice.
After attending this course delegates will be able to:
- Identify nutritional need within a diverse mental health population
- Explore current evidence in nutrition and its effect on mental health problems
- Understand the practice based evidence of promoting good nutritional health
