headspace Lismore now has a dietitian!!
When you think of improving your mental health, you may not think about changing the food you eat. But there is a strong link between what we eat and how we feel!
Food plays a key role in our physical and mental health and wellbeing. We all have different health challenges so there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach when it comes to food and nutrition. Dietitians understand how nutrition impacts the body and use this knowledge to treat a range of medical conditions.
At headspace Lismore our Dietician Renee can provide FREE support to address:
- Eating Disorders;
- Chronic conditions such as diabetes;
- Other diagnosed disorders such as sensory aversions to food that impact on adequate diet.
You can access our dietician through referral by a General Practitioner under the following treatment plans:
- Eating Disorder Plan (EDP)
People who have a diagnosis of an eating disorder can access an EDP. This includes 20 dietetic services per year (can be used per 12-month period).
- Enhanced Primary Care Plan (EPC)
Young people who have a chronic condition and complex care needs being managed by a general practitioner may access an EPC. This includes 5 dietetics services per year
