On World Mental Health Day – 10 October 2018 – we held an evening seminar ‘Food For Thought’ to highlight the critical role of nutrition in mental health.

With over 800 people in attendance, we heard perspectives from Sarah Wilson, Professor Julia Rucklidge and Ben Warren on how what we eat impacts our mental health. Art Green was our amazing MC for the evening.

From the event, we raised $27,407.38 for the Mental Health and Nutrition Research Group at the University of Canterbury - thank you to everyone that attended!
