If you suffer from depression or anxiety - or simply want to understand how you can best support your mental health - this course is for you! This four week webinar is designed to help you understand the importance of nutrition and lifestyle behaviours which support mental wellness. It will provide you with tips and techniques to reduce help depressive symptoms, help you understand what supplements might be helpful for you and give you support on interpreting blood tests and navigating the medical world.
Are you doing everything you can do to support your mental health?
Feeling depressed (whether diagnosed as having depression or not) and experiencing anxiety are two of the most common forms of mental illness experienced by New Zealanders. Both of which can contribute to you living below your potential. Research suggests that there are actions we can incorporate into our lives to lesson the symptoms of mild mental illness and increase our general wellbeing; from diet to lifestyle; supplements to improving physical health.
