Why Nutrition and Mental Health Need Each Other

Hosted by the Nutrition Resource Centre

Why should nutrition professionals mind about mental health promotion?
And why should mental health professionals mind about healthy eating?
At NRC’s 2017 Forum, join your colleagues from across Ontario to explore why nutrition and mental health need each other. You will learn about the incredibly complex relationship between nutrition and mental health that is being unveiled by the latest science. You will hear examples of interprofessional collaboration and the experiences of colleagues who are incorporating nutrition and mental health promotion in their practice – and how you can as well. You will hear moving personal stories and have the opportunity to network with leaders who will challenge and inspire you.  If you are passionate about maximizing nutrition and mental health together to promote overall health and wellbeing, this is your can’t-miss event of the year.
