Whatever your age, having a healthy brain is the key to a happy and fulfilled life. We all know how to take care of our physical health, but we often feel powerless about what we can do to protect our mental wellbeing too.
Join Kimberley Wilson, Chartered Psychologist and author of How to Build a Healthy Brain, for this insightful talk about how to look after your mental health. Kimberley believes the way we think about mental health – as separate from physical health – is flawed. Her philosophy of Whole Body Mental Health is a comprehensive approach to mental health care: integrating evidence-based nutrition and lifestyle factors with psychological therapy. Her degree in nutrition informs her approach of looking at the roles food and lifestyle play in our mental health, including disordered eating, the gut-brain axis and our emotional relationship with food.
Host of the podcast Made of Stronger Stuff alongside Dr Xand van Tulleken on BBC Radio 4, Kimberley is often recognized as a former finalist on the Great British Bake Off and was the featured mental health expert on several Channel 4 documentaries throughout 2020 about the impact of Coronavirus.
