  • Not very useful

    Not a very useful handout in terms of giving nutrition tips for people managing depression. For example, it is often not realistic for them to spend a lot of time meal planning/prepping, let alone getting up and eating regularly at times. I was expecting more realistic tips listed for people in those situations.
