“Nutritional Support for Antidepressant Withdrawal” will explore the important role of nutrition in supporting individuals who are withdrawing from antidepressant medications. Antidepressant withdrawal, also known as discontinuation syndrome, can be a challenging and complex process for many individuals, and proper nutrition can play a significant role in mitigating withdrawal symptoms and supporting overall well-being. In this webinar, Dr. Greenblatt will delve into the science of how specific nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and other dietary factors can impact neurotransmitter production, mood regulation, and the withdrawal process from antidepressant medications. Practical strategies for incorporating targeted nutritional support into a comprehensive withdrawal plan will also be discussed, including dietary recommendations, supplementation strategies, and lifestyle modifications that can aid in managing withdrawal symptoms and promoting optimal mental health during this process. Whether you are a healthcare practitioner or an individual seeking support in navigating antidepressant withdrawal, this webinar will provide valuable insights and evidence-based strategies for incorporating nutrition as an important component of a holistic approach to mental health.
