Food Matters delivers a food and wellbeing programme in recognition of the connection between diet and mental health.
For the most vulnerable members of our society eating well can be a challenge. Yet it is these people who are most likely to suffer from mental health problems and who are most in need of food and drink which can support, nurture and contribute to improved health.
Mental health problems affect more than 25 per cent of all people at some point in their lives. These figures rise dramatically for many vulnerable groups including those within the penal system, substance mis-users and the homeless.
At any one time, about 10% of the adult population is suffering from a mental or behavioural disorder.
