Research has found that regular physical activity appears as effective as psychotherapy for treating mild to moderate depression. Therapists also report that patients who exercise regularly simply feel better and are less likely to overeat or abuse alcohol and drugs. Source: CMHA

Clinical Nutrition

Throughout HPHA, a team of Registered Dietitians aim to provide effective, evidence based nutritional assessment, dietary advice and support to patients and their families. They translate nutrition science into practical information and advice about food.  The primary goal of clinical nutrition services is prevention and treatment of nutrition related symptoms and/or disease.

Our clinical dietitians play an active role within the multidisciplinary team to develop clinically appropriate nutrition care plans. They also work closely with nutrition and food services staff to ensure suitable therapeutic meals are provided to patients. The Clinical Nutrition Assistant is the key link between the dietitians and the food services department, providing a continuum of care, which ensures that services are easily accessible and sensitive to individual dietary needs.
