The online conference Mental Health, Precision Nutrition, and Lifestyle Medicine: Translating Evidence to Clinical Practice was an inspirational event that was attended by 440 health professionals dedicated to advancing the role of nutrition and lifestyle medicine in mental health.
Mostly attended by people in the United Kingdom, an additional 27 countries took part making this an important international event. Sharing our vision for high quality continuing professional development were 23 educational institutes, charities, and corporate sponsors, including the Platinum Sponsors: CNS Labs, Hifas da Terra, and Pure Encapsulations.
Across the day were a series of 12 remarkable presentations from primary researchers, doctors, psychiatrists, nutritionists, and clinicians whose work is quite literally changing the landscape of mental healthcare from community initiatives to national health programs and as far as impacting global policy.
A recuring theme that connected all the presentation is that we have the scientific evidence, we have interventional programs that have been shown to be effective, we just need to widely embrace a more integrative, multi-disciplinary approach that incorporates nutrition and lifestyle medicine in the mental health agenda.
On behalf of the Nutritional Medicine Institute and the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine, we would like to thank all the speakers, sponsors, event partners and, most importantly, the committed health professionals who attended, helped make this possible, and will continue to inspire change long after this important event. Thank you for your support, and for being the pioneers of better healthcare.
