Nutrition Society Winter Conference: Diet, Nutrition and Mental Health and Wellbeing

Nutrition has been implicated in behaviour, mood and in the pathology and treatment of mental illness. The purpose of this conference is to review where the evidence is strong, where there are unmet needs for research and to draw together the community working in this area.
