The key to understanding the importance of nutrition for our mental health is having some basic knowledge about what exactly it is that nutrients do in our brains. This workshop will provide an overview of nutrition in brain health, as well as a summary of some of the clinical studies showing how dietary education and supplementation are being used to improve mental health.

The talk will end with practical ideas for fostering better eating habits, even in our pickiest eaters such as those on the autism spectrum.

This session is presented by the Community Education Service of the Child & Adolescent Addiction, Mental Health & Psychiatry Program (CAAMHPP) of AHS in partnership with The University of Calgary.

This FREE program will be presented via videoconference in the Program Room of the library. No registration is required.
