Nutritional interventions to optimise mental health 

Over the last decade, scientists have been uncovering an uncomfortable truth: what we eat is affecting our mental health. In this talk, Meredith Blampied will discuss practical and easy ways to introduce nutrition into clinical practice, reviewing some of the hypothesised mechanisms of action and the evidence to date.

Meredith Blampied is a Registered Clinical Psychologist, Senior PhD Student. Meredith’s research interests include investigating the role of nutrition in mental health, exploring feedback-informed treatment and best-evidence practice for anxiety disorders, particularly obsessive compulsive disorder.  Meredith has also worked on a number of research project in the areas of earthquake anxiety, child development and learning and social psychology. Meredith has had experience working with adults experiencing a range of mental health issues including anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, depression, substance abuse and dependence, adjustment, stress and offending behaviours. She is currently completing her PhD in mental health and nutrition, runs her own private practice, specialising in telehealth and is a consultant on various research projects.
