This self study course makes a great CPE program because it emphasizes an area of nutrition that is very important, but not usually part of the basic education for dietitians.
- Stronger Mental Health through Diet and Lifestyle Course
Theresa Stahl, RDN, LDN, FAND
This is a much needed focus area for clinicians.  I work in behavioral health and so many people, RDs included, completely neglect healthy eating basics as part of their interaction with patients. My patients often have extremely unhealthy, erratic eating habits. Many skip meals, only to binge days later, or eat nothing but processed junk food. Many do not realize that they can help themselves feel better and enhance the effectiveness of their treatment with the simplest dietary changes. This course will give clinicians the tools they need to help patients experiencing mental illness.
- Stronger Mental Health through Diet and Lifestyle Course
Lori Stevens, RD, LDN
This required reading and self study course is well rounded and focuses on lifestyle behaviors versus just diet. Diet is an important component for mental health, yes, but lifestyle as a whole must be considered and improved upon for optimal mental health. I definitely recommend!
