This workshop on nutraceuticals will first give an overview on why additional nutrients may be necessary for some people above dietary change alone. Dr Mischoulon, Prof Rucklidge and Dr Sarris will discuss the current state of the field including the evidence on using single nutrients like minerals, vitamins, omega 3s and probiotics to treat mental illness as well as combination approaches. They will discuss safety aspects, using nutrients as adjuncts to medications as well as discuss potential mechanism of action. The workshop will discuss practical ways that mental health professionals could implement this research into every day practice.
