Within the lifestyle psychiatry clinic at APN London, clients will receive lifestyle interventions alongside more traditional mental health treatments, such as medication, therapy, or interventional psychiatry.
In addition, an integrated multidisciplinary team (MDT) will help and empower clients along their holistic whole-care journey to better health. The APN MDT includes nutritionists, psychiatrists, exercise specialists, mind-body therapists, general practitioners, and sleep specialists.

WHAT IS LIFESTYLE PSYCHIATRY?
Lifestyle psychiatry is an emerging field that aims to improve mental health outcomes and overall well-being by addressing lifestyle factors that contribute to mental health issues, including diet, exercise, sleep, stress management, and social connections. Evaluating and improving lifestyle factors can be especially beneficial for individuals struggling with depression and anxiety.
Lifestyle psychiatry is part of a more significant lifestyle medicine movement – an approach that strives to reduce disease burden and improve health by addressing the modifiable contributors to chronic illness.LEARN MORE
APN Lifestyle Psychiatry Assessments
Our multi-professional team will work with clients to develop and enable a comprehensive, personalised recovery treatment plan that considers the following:
- Social interactions and relationships
- Substance use
- Mental and physical health
By combining information from multiple assessments, we can comprehensively understand an individual’s mental health and lifestyle factors contributing to their symptoms. This valuable information is used to create with clients a personalised treatment plan that addresses mental health concerns and lifestyle factors to improve overall well-being.ENQUIRE ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
The Lifestyle Psychiatry Programme
The proposed length of the lifestyle psychiatry programme at APN is three months, with weekly MDT input, using personalised lifestyle plans to enable a comprehensive and meaningful approach to positive lifestyle changes and monthly comprehensive mental health assessments.
We may also indicate a GP review before treatment and at three months to establish the impact of lifestyle changes on physical health. After three months, the client will develop with the MDT a personalised lifestyle maintenance plan and establish follow-up every three to six months.
The programme benefits not only clients with a mental health condition but anyone who would like to start making transformative changes to their lives through healthy habits.
