Mental Health & Nutrition Group

The Mental Health and Nutrition Group is designed to promote mental health through healthy eating and nutritional care. This group uses evidenced-based healthy lifestyle interventions that reduce the risk of chronic diseases and enhance the mental health of our patients. This is an 11-week program in which patients can enter after completing an evaluation with one of the group leaders.

Patients will learn:

  • How to plan quick and tasty meals on a tight budget
  • What foods are essential for a nutritious diet
  • How to increase energy, reduce depression, and maintain a healthy weight with adequate protein
  • How good fats can help maintain a healthy weight and improve memory, focus, and concentration
  • What healthy snacks can diminish food cravings and help with anxiety
  • How to eat to improve sleep and fuel the body for exercise
  • The impact carbohydrates have on blood sugars, imbalanced moods, and compulsive eating
  • The role vitamin or mineral deficiencies can play in fatigue, depression, gastrointestinal issues, and other chronic conditions
  • The potential impact of processed foods on your health, and when you should consider avoiding them
