Food for thought: the relationship between diet and outcomes for depression and anxiety

The mechanism by which diet interacts with mental health is likely complex and bidirectional, meaning not only might, for example, a healthy diet protect against depression, but also that experiencing depression might lead to a person’s changing their diet. Like any other organ, the brain has nutritional needs, so it is reasonable to assume that what we eat will affect its functioning and therefore our mental health.

This research bulletin explores the latest evidence on the relationship between diet and outcomes for depression and anxiety.
