Diet expert to share his skills

Have your say

A SOUTH Yorkshire diet specialist is to share his expertise with NHS staff in other parts of the UK.

Kevin Williamson, whose work with young people with mental health problems in Rotherham and Doncaster has received a Parliamentary commendation, developed a training course which will be used by health workers in the south east of England.

The senior nutritionist has drawn praise from the Government’s Food and Health Forum, which recommended other NHS trusts adopt a similar approach to Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust.

Kevin said: “There is strong evidence that improving the nutrient intake is beneficial in the treatment of depression, depressed mood and psychosis.”
