In this presentation from the European Psychiatry Association conference in 2020, Professor Siegfried Kasper, Emeritus Professor at the Medical University of Vienna, and Dr Alex Richardson of FAB Research discuss the importance of diet and lifestyle factors in mental health – giving a 5-minute summary answer to each of 6 key questions:

  • What is mental health? And why are diet and lifestyle relevant?
  • How can lifestyle habits and nutrition affect mental health?
  • What evidence do we have that food and supplements play a role in mantaining mental health?
  • What factors make research into nutrition and food supplements particularly difficult?
  • What would we like to have from food supplements in the future?
  • What can we do today in terms of lifestyle habits and nutrition to preserve mental health?
