Presented by James Greenblatt, M.D.

Methylation is a metabolic pathway that is critical for emotional, behavioral and neurocognitive health. Essential cofactors in this pathway, such as folate, vitamin B12, and vitamin B6 are powerful, evidence-based supplements in clinical mental health settings. However, variations in genes such as MTHFR and COMT, which may affect up to 50% of the population, strongly influence a patient’s specific nutrient needs and the efficacy of numerous modalities, rendering a “one size fits all” approach ineffective.

Leading the discussion is James Greenblatt, M.D., an integrative psychiatrist and Chief Medical Officer of Walden Behavioral Care in Waltham, MA, and a faculty member in the Department of Psychiatry at Tufts Medical School. In his 24 years of clinical psychiatric practice, Dr. Greenblatt has applied personalized, evidence-based assessment and objective supplement approaches to guide patients to mental and emotional wellness. In this webinar, Dr. Greenblatt will provide a practical and reliable “road map” illustrating how to use genetic testing to guide nutritional supplement selection for optimal mental health outcomes.
