Many of you will have watched the moving and insightful BBC documentary Mind Over Marathon, which followed 10 volunteers, each with their on mental health concern. Part of the Heads Together mental health awareness campaign, the programme followed the volunteers as they used training for the London Marathon both as a personal challenge and treatment. I have written elsewhere about the value of exercise as a mental health intervention and it is great to see it receiving more recognition for its benefits.
Laura Thomas PhD was the nutrition consultant on the programme and on the latest episode of her podcast we talk about the five pillars of mental health self-care, the role of nutrition on brain health and dinosaurs. Enjoy!
