Dr. Drew Ramsey is one of psychiatry’s leading proponents of using dietary change to help balance moods, sharpen brain function, and improve mental health. He is the co-author of the recent culinary hit Fifty Shades of Kale (HarperWave) alongside veteran cookbook author Jennifer Iserloh, a cookbook that takes a fun, tongue-in-cheek approach to healthy eating. In his book and keynote presentations, he combines the latest brain science with practical advice to help people live their healthiest, happiest lives. With years of clinical experience, he focuses on ways to treat depression and anxiety with a combination of psychotherapy, lifestyle modification, and psychopharmacology. Ramsey is an excellent speaker for health and wellness organizations, schools and universities, health and nutrition conferences, and corporations.

As a practicing psychiatrist for over a decade, Ramsey’s areas of clinical expertise include depression, anxiety, work stress, and relationship issues. He is a great speaker, particularly for students and employees in the workplace, as he often educates audiences on dealing with stress, fatigue, or depression and how to eat right for optimal performance.

Dr. Drew Ramsey is also co-author of The Happiness Diet, which explores how modern food impairs brain function and provides a nutrition prescription for mood, energy, and focus. His research focuses on concepts of “brain food” and “mood food” and he aims to help educate the public on the long-lasting effects of the right foods on overall health.

Regularly providing expert opinion on psychiatry-related topics to the media, Ramsey aims to bridge the gap between meaningful science and the public. His writing and commentary have appeared in the New York Times, The Huffington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, Men’s Journal, and Psychology Today. His work has been featured on The Doctors, CBS’s Sunday Morning, TEDx, and he regularly reports on dietary trends.

He supervises patient evaluation in the Columbia University Adult Psychiatry Residency Program, serves as a thesis mentor for graduate students at the Columbia University Institute of Human Nutrition, and from 2005 to 2008 Ramsey directed the Audubon Continuing Day Treatment Program. He is a fellow of the American Psychiatric Association.
