Te Puna Toiora: Mental Health and Nutrition Research

The Mental Health and Nutrition Research Group, established in 2012 by Professor Julia Rucklidge, is dedicated to conducting independent research investigating the impact of nutrients and nutrition on mental health. Studies are conducted across a broad range of health areas including ADHD, depression during pregnancy, anxiety, insomnia and addictions. The group has helped many families all over Aotearoa New Zealand with this approach, but more research is needed.

The research has been generously supported by donations from people all over the world dedicated to finding new solutions to mental illness. The Mental Health and Nutrition Research fund supports ongoing research and PhD scholarships in the area of nutrition and mental illness.
