February 13-14, 2019: Lifestyle and Mental Health
EPP Symposium

A healthy lifestyle – healthy diet, exercise, sleep, and being in nature – is believed to be beneficial for one’s mental health. So, the study of healthy lifestyle choices and their putative relation with psychological well-being may yield important knowledge in order to increase quality of life and in fact perhaps even prevent or treat mental disorders. In this EPP symposium experts from the field will discuss how healthy lifestyle could be beneficial for mental health, the challenges that research on this topic faces, and wheth-er interventions that promote a healthy lifestyle as yet should or should not be applied as part of the treatment and prevention of mental health problems..
