Why not buy the Guide as part of the Food and Mood self-help pack?

"This little booklet is an absolutely invaluable resource for survivors. I'm really impressed with how much you’ve managed to pack into the 16 pages. The Q&A format works really well and your measured approach and the way you’ve succinctly explained many complex things, such as caffeine addiction and food sensitivity, is so helpful. Experimenting just with varying what I eat and drink (while continuing with my medication) has led to a significant improvement in my health. Thank you so much!" 
Sarah Lloyd, Bipolar Survivor, UK 

"An excellent resource for DIY Food and Mood workshop participants to take home as a summary of the session." 
Padraig Breatnach, Project Worker, Sussex Oakleaf Housing Association, UK
