No: There is no evidence that any vitamin supplement helps alleviate symptoms associated with any psychiatric illness. Vitamin k specifically has no known effects on the brain or on psychiatric illness. It is primarily associated with bone growth and clotting. There is some research associating omega 3 fatty acids (especially high dha) with better mental health but even these are preliminary.
