About the event

We all know that as a nation our mental health is in crisis. But what most don't know is that a critical ingredient in this debate and a crucial part of the solution - what we eat - is being ignored. Nutrition has more influence on what we feel, who we become and how we behave than we could ever have imagined. It affects everything from our decision-making to aggression and violence. Yet mental health disorders are overwhelmingly treated as 'mind' problems as if the physical brain - and how we feed it - is irrelevant. Someone suffering from depression is more likely to be asked about their relationship with their mother than their relationship with food. Psychologist Kimberley Wilson, author of Unprocessed: What Your Diet is Doing to Your Brain, will draw on startling new research - as well as her own work in prisons, schools and hospitals around the country - to reveal the role of food and nutrients in brain development and mental health. Discover how the food a woman eats during pregnancy influences the size of her baby's brain, how hunger makes you mean and how nutrient deficiencies change your personality. Join Kimberley and hear why poor nutrition must be recognised as a social injustice and why action is needed now.
