Unhealthy diet is now the leading cause of early death in men, and number two globally. Professor Jacka has pioneered and led the development of a large and robust body of evidence showing that unhealthy diet is also a key risk factor for psychiatric illnesses such as depression and anxiety and is recognised as a research leader in this new field.

In this presentation, she will provide an up-to-date overview of the evidence regarding the impact of diet on mental and brain health across age groups, countries and cultures. She will then focus on the new research addressing the microbiome-gut-brain axis in mood and behaviour. Finally, she will discuss new evidence for diet as a clinical strategy for improving mental and brain health and discuss the research activities being undertaken at the Food & Mood Centre.
