Nutrition for Schizophrenia and Psychosis
Thursday 23rd March, 18.00-19.00
About one in a hundred people have schizophrenia and can have a variety of ‘positive’ symptoms, such as hallucinations, delusions or disordered speech/behaviour, and ‘negative’ symptoms such as problems with fluency of language and thoughts or with expression of emotions. As is the case with most mental illness, the cause of schizophrenia is not known. The conventional treatment for schizophrenia is usually long-term treatment with antipsychotic medication. There is growing evidence for the benefits of nutritional therapy for those with schizophrenia; it has been shown to have a positive impact on symptoms and may also help to attenuate the side-effects of medication. Deborah Colson, our speaker for the evening, is a specialist in nutrition for mental health and will be taking you through practical steps to address biochemical factors which may contribute to schizophrenia and side-effects of medications.
