! Eating problems 

If the thoughts of what or when to eat are constant on your mind, it might mean there’s an issue with eating. Eating problems can involve tough experiences and difficult feelings, in addition to food. Check out our info on eating disorders for more details, including ways to get help and tips on how to deal with it. 

It’s widely known that nutrition plays a key role in your physical health. But studies also show that nutrition directly affects our mental and emotional wellbeing, too. 

On this page you can find factsheets, tips and information and organisations about diet, the impact it can have on your mental health and ways to improve your wellbeing.
