Introducing Nutrition & Mental Health
Your body and mind are inextricably connected - one impacts the other and vice-a-versa. But few people - and fewer professionals - pay much attention to your nutrition and diet in the treatment of mental health concerns. That’s why we're pleased to introduce our new blog, Nutrition and Mental Health with Janice Wood. This is a blog about understanding the importance that good nutrition and a balanced diet have in promoting and maintaining our mental health and happiness.
