Climate Change and Mental Health
Changes to our environment affect our everyday life, perceptions, and experiences. They can be gradual changes in temperature or precipitation as well as more abrupt changes, like extreme weather events. Both impact the way we think and feel. These effects of global climate change on mental health and well-being are a critical part to addressing the climate crisis and responding to its overall health impacts. This new GEH Podcast features experts in the United States and Canada about the mental health effects of climate change, who are the populations affected, and some response strategies.
