Description:  

Food and mood; the link between a healthy dietary pattern and positive mental health is fuelled by promising research, but what is less clear are the mechanisms behind this. Low mood can often lead to nutrient-poor comfort foods. So can more comfort foods contribute to depression? And can we improve the symptoms and severity of depression in the kitchen?

Objectives:
  • To explore the latest research on food and its impact on mental health
  • To understand whether certain foods have a greater impact on mood and the mechanisms behind these
  • To walk away with clear recommendations for which foods we should be recommending to clients, for improved mental health


About the presenter:

Dr Tetyana Rocks from Deakin University’s Food and Mood Centre will share the latest research on the benefits of nutrition in reducing the severity of depression and anxiety. Dr Rocks will provide guidance of which foods in particular we should be recommending, and why, for improved mental health.
