Hi, I Am Jennifer Hanes

I am a registered dietitian who specializes in nutrition as an adjunct therapy for mental health and illness.

Just like you, I did not learn about nutritional psychiatry in school. The only psychiatric education we had was a general overview of eating disorders, and my preceptors flat-out told me not to worry about psychiatric medications when reviewing patients.

What makes that even worse is that this location had a psychiatric unit on site!

Yet, driven by an insatiable thirst for knowledge and fueled by the hyperfocus bestowed upon me by ADHD, I delved deep in to the scientific research that my patients needed.

Immersed in the diverse landscapes of numerous mental health facilities, I gained invaluable firsthand experience that illuminated the profound impact nutrition can have on mental well-being.

So now I’d like to pass all this knowledge and experience on to you, fellow dietitians.
