International Society for Nutritional Psychiatry Research (ISNPR)

“To support scientifically rigorous research into nutritional approaches to the prevention and treatment of mental disorders and their comorbidities”

The aims of the ISNPR are to: 

1) Grow the field of nutritional psychiatry research by:
  • supporting the generation of high quality evidence for nutritional approaches to the prevention and treatment of mental disorders
  • sharing knowledge and building research collaborations
  • encouraging a multi-disciplinary approach to nutritional psychiatry research
  • building capacity in early career researchers by matching ECRs with mentors or qualified organisations in order to facilitate internships and study visits
  • building partnerships with other disciplines and organisations with common aims
2) Facilitate Knowledge Translation (KT) by:
  • promoting events, special edition journal issues, and major updates within fields of related research
  • providing forums for open discussion of new research developments, methodologies, and ideas
  • holding meetings and events supporting the development of the field of nutritional psychiatry research
  • supporting the translation of evidence into policy and clinical practice by acting as a resource for research evidence and consensus
  • building partnerships with health bodies and relevant government organisations
 

The field of nutritional psychiatry is rapidly developing and involves researchers from around the world from the fields of nutrition, mental health, population health and epidemiology. It is envisaged that this society be open to all whom may have an interest in this field, no matter what their discipline.
