FAB WEBINAR - How Food Affects Your Brain: The Role of Nutrition and Diet in the Mental Health Crisis

FAB Research


Hear from leading international researchers why improving nutrition is so crucial to reducing the current 'epidemic' of mental health problems. And how our diets affect how we all feel, think, and behave.

The recording - with handouts - is available

Mental health is rarely out of the news these days - as health services fail to keep pace with the demand for more and better services to support the increasing numbers of people who urgently need help. 

But despite its importance to the health of our brains - as well as our bodies - the fundamental role of FOOD and DIET still gets relatively little attention. Or the information provided is often confusing or unreliable, which can make matters worse.

In this live webinar, leading international researchers Professor John Stein and Dr Alex Richardson will summarise the latest scientific evidence and answer your questions on:

  • why what we eat has such a powerful influence on how we feel, think, and behave – by its effects on our brains and nervous systems
  • how changing diets really can change minds, for better or for worse – and the practical implications of this for health and education professionals, policymakers, and the general public


Find out how key elements of modern diets can negatively affect brain development and function, and:

  • reduce our resilience to stress, anxiety, depression, dementia and other mental health problems
  • increase risks for specific developmental conditions like ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia and autism – and more general learning difficulties
  • promote tendencies for impulsive, aggressive and antisocial behaviour, rather than pro-social co-operation and problem-solving
  • also relate to common physical health problems including allergies and immune disorders, heart disease and stroke, and chronic pain

Learn how some basic nutritional and dietary changes could improve mental health and wellbeing both now – and for future generations.
