In her latest book, Nutrition Essentials for Mental Health: A Complete Guide to the Food-Mood Connection, Dr. Leslie Korn provides clinicians with a practical guide to the complex relationship between what we eat and the way we think, feel, and interact with the world.
Diet is an essential component of a client's clinical profile, and dietary changes can work alongside or even replace medications to alleviate symptoms and support mental wellness. Few therapists, however, have any nutritional training.
This book is an ideal place to begin. Covering essential assessment techniques, leading-edge protocols, illuminating clinical vignettes, easy, affordable recipes, and much more, it offers clinicians powerful tools to enhance the efficacy of all their methods and support clients' mental health with more effective, integrated treatment.

"I highly recommend this book to any professional or clinician working in the mental health field, as it will provide an invaluable resource for their patients. Korn's unique ability to articulate a collaborative approach toward compassionate mental health care is refreshing. With years of clinical experience supported by decades of evidence-based research, her book enables clinicians to help their patients understand the underlying biological processes driving their mood and behavior and make the necessary changes to restore balance." - James M. Greenblatt, MD, Integrative Psychiatrist, Editor of Integrative Therapies for Depression
