From 2013 through 2018 (and occasionally since then), Dr. Bonnie Kaplan, along with co-author Dr. Julia Rucklidge, regularly wrote a series of blog posts for Mad in America on the topic of mental health and nutrition. Several of those posts are linked here.
Relatedly, Drs. Kaplan and Rucklidge also created a free, online course to provide critical research-based information on the role of nutrition in preventing and treating mental health challenges, augmenting their presentation with a brief review of changes in nutrition over the past several centuries and an introduction to the potential mechanisms of action in micronutrient treatments.
