Can diet help?
Diet can help for some people. For instance some mental health conditions affect people’s appetite and in turn this affects the amount and type of food they eat. Sometimes the medication taken for a particular condition can affect appetite.
Additionally, more and more evidence is emerging on the role of nutrient deficiences and mental health conditions.
