Young Dietitian

Working with a registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDN) means working with a medical professional who provides medical nutrition therapy to patients and their support system.  Dietitians are here to help with multiple different mental health conditions (e.g. depression, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, substance abuse, ADHD, autism, and others). 


A RDN will usually work with the clients to complete a nutritional assessment of the complete diet; including foods, beverages, supplements, and medications, as well as eating patterns, allergies, food preferences and aversions, socioeconomic barriers, and religious beliefs that influence food consumption.  A RDN might request additional assessments be completed by a family doctor to check vitals, weight management, and any other underlining needs that can be helpful to the dietitian.


A Nutrition Care Plan is then created and can be used to serve as a guide for treatment.  The plan is a collaborative approach between the client and their support system to help restore wellness to the mind and body.
