Tackling Teenage Mental Health with Dr Adrian Lopresti

Mood disorders are rising exponentially in the younger population, affecting around 20% of young Australians. We are well-aware of the effects of computer gaming, social media and the "online life" of teenagers, and how these influence mood, but what about dietary effects on depression, anxiety, anger and aggression? Compounding this is the fact that teenagers are notorious for poor sleep hygiene and compliance with medications and medical advice.
