Abstract

Serious mental illnesses and their treatments often have adverse nutritional effects, but little is known about the effective nutritional counseling to use with those who suffer from them. The therapeutic challenges involved include finding medications that control symptoms while minimizing their adverse effects on weight gain and on other metabolic indicators of risk. These and some recommendations are described.
