Kimberley Wilson – How to Build a Healthy Brain
28th April 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Even before the Covid-19 pandemic, depression and other mental health problems were on the rise in many countries. Dementia has overtaken heart disease as the leading cause of death in England and Wales. Mental distress and suicide among young people are at a 19-year high. Though there are some genetic risks associated with developing brain-related illnesses, for most people lifestyle factors like diet, sleep and exercise have a bigger influence on our mental health.
The best way to protect mental well-being and brain health is through prevention. People who adopt healthy habits early in life slow brain aging and stand a much higher chance of delaying avoiding problems later on.
Drawing on the latest clinical evidence, psychologist and author of How to Build a Healthy Brain Kimberley Wilson offers a guide on how to protect long-term brain health. With the additional stress of the pandemic actively protecting our brains has never been more important. Hear how lifestyle habits can make a difference, discover the science underpinning them and get practical advice to use straight away.
