Running for #MentalWellness

Dr. Shawn Talbott (Ph.D., CNS, LDN, FACSM, FACN, FAIS) has gone from triathlon struggler to gut-brain guru! With a Ph.D. in Nutritional Biochemistry, he's on a mission to boost everyday human performance through the power of natural solutions and the gut-brain axis.

In exactly one week, I’ll be running the London Marathon to raise money for Erika’s Lighthouse.

Erika’s Lighthouse is committed to helping schools create an inclusive school culture around mental health. Every school should provide students with a safe and welcoming environment and have knowledgeable adults who are willing and available to help.

Since I’ll be thinking of EL every step of the 26.2 miles, PLEASE consider donating $26.20 HERE – and I’ll send you a signed copy of my Mental Fitness book (Maximizing Mood, Motivation, & Mental Wellness by Optimizing the Brain-Body-Biome).*

*after I see your donation – I’ll email to get your physical mailing address and how to personalize your signature (order one for you and a friend for $50)…

More than 50,000 educators have used EL’s School Policy & Staff Development program this year! It provides schools with positive school policies, staff training, educator support, and more to help build a strong foundation in the school community to promote good mental health and early identification.

We want every adult in the school to be able to recognize the signs and symptoms of adolescent depression, feel confident to discuss mental health with students, and to know what to do if they are concerned about a student.
