Information For Media

Food and behaviour is a topic that affects everyone. What we eat – or what we neglect to eat – has a profound impact on our brains. In a world where mental health problems are a bigger drain on health services than heart conditions and cancer combined, what we need is more information and a bigger soapbox to shout it from.

This is a primary aim of our website. To present news and research on all matters relating to nutrition and mental health, representing a unique and ever-growing database of new developments and insights as and when they happen. 

We also include links to relevant literature and resources; while Associate Members can access exclusive video presentations from some of the leading researchers in the field.
