Nutrition and mental health – Seminar for Mental Health First Aiders.

The Commission were delighted to be invited to give a seminar to Guernsey Mind’s Mental Health First Aiders. Our CEO Simon Sebire teamed up with Myfanwy Datta from the States Dietetics team and presented to around 100 Mental Health First Aiders from organisations across Guernsey and Alderney. The seminar looked into the evidence behind how what we eat affects our mental health, tips for small changes that can make eating well at work easier and explored the Mediterranean diet which research shows is an eating pattern most consistently linked to better mental health.
