Mental Health Awareness Week this year is 10th - 16th May and we're proud to continue this series of free webinars that looks at the importance of nutrition in optimising mental wellbeing and brain health.
Nutrition as a means of both prevention and treatment of mental health, is understood by all and implemented by many. The Food For The Brain Foundation is looking to educate and provide important information to children, parents, teachers, schools, universities, the public, health professionals, food service operators, caterers and the government, thereby promoting mental wellbeing and brain health through optimum nutrition.
This session, delivered by David Titman, is for attendees from the first two webinars who now have a ﬁrm grip on nutrition in relation to overall health and mental wellbeing from the first two webinars, this presentation aims to help attendees put this knowledge into practice. Attendees will go away with some key knowledge about changing behaviour around food choices, how to encourage better eating habits and how to increase awareness amongst end users and staff.
There will be example studies from current accredited universities and wider organisations, who have made some signiﬁcant changes in their menu offerings after undergoing training with Food for the Brain.

Currently working in both academic and business settings, he applies a practical approach to implementing progressive nutrition strategies that meet the needs of both businesses and end users.
