The literature was organized within four key themes as outlined in four sections of this paper: 1) Nutrition and its role in mental health promotion and disease prevention;2) Intersections between mental health conditions and dietetics practice; 3) Diversity in practice; and 4) Nutritional care for mental health populations.
