Free Webinar: Navigating the Pandemic:  How Research on the Gut-Brain Connection Can Teach Us to Lead a Happier Life

Can food be used to treat depression, anxiety, PTSD, and other mental health conditions? How does the food we eat impact our emotions and behaviors? How has the pandemic changed the way we eat? Can certain foods put us in a good mood? What should we avoid putting on our plate?

What to learn the cutting-edge science behind nutrition and mental health?  And… what to eat right now to feel better

The Institute for Mental Health Research (IMHR) invites you to join them as they navigate COVID-19 with its heavy mental health burden. The free webinar offers a roadmap to the dietary choices that most impact mental health. IMHR will dive into the science behind healthy diets – how food can help treat and prevent a wide range of psychological and cognitive health issues, including depression, anxiety, PTSD, and more.

The webinar will also feature internationally recognized nutritional psychiatrist Dr. Uma Naidoo, who will help us understand the science-based approaches to elevating mood… through food! You will learn about the gut-brain connection and its impact on mental wellbeing; how the pandemic is affecting your eating habits; and research-based strategies everyone can adopt to make better choices. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask specific questions about your personal diet and mood! Perfect timing for this discussion after a year of COVID and quarantine.

In addition, all attendees will be entered into a drawing and one lucky winner will receive a free copy of “This is Your Brain on Food, An Indispensable Guide to the Surprising Foods that Fight Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, OCD, ADHD and More,” by Uma Naidoo. Featured in the Wall Street Journal, ABC News, Harvard Health Press, and now a bestseller in Canada.
