This article reports the findings from a stakeholder consultation to explore the future scope and design of nutrition education for mental health practitioners. The project aimed to consult a range of stakeholders about the scope and design of a nutrition education module in mental health. Focus groups and individual interviews were used to collect data describing the views of 39 stakeholders. A thematic analysis produced five themes to inform the development of an e-learning module. It was discovered that stakeholders felt that nutrition science was an important topic for mental health education. They felt that the need for the education was wider than mental health services and could even be useful outside healthcare. Views about an e-learning approach and the academic level were mixed. Assessing learning through an e-learning platform was also identified as a challenge.
