3:10 How diet can help depression

For a healthy heart, many experts say you can't go wrong with a Mediterranean diet full of wholegrains, nuts, olive oil and fresh vegetables and fruit.

Now evidence is growing that the same diet can be good for a healthy mind too.  Researchers at Deakin Univeristy in Melbourne put dozens of patients with depression and other disorders on the diet and found food improved the mood of about a third of them.

We'll talk to the lead researcher, Professor Felice Jacka about diet and mental health.
