Anxious About Climate Change?

Climate change negatively impacts mental health, with climate change linked to stress, trauma, PTSD, grief, fear, anxiety, depression and suicide.
Dr. Simon Sherry recently discussed climate change and mental health with Kamyar Razavi of Global News. He encouraged people to translate their climate-related grief or anxiety into concrete action.
“‘If you are passive and sedentary and ruminative, sitting on the couch and doing nothing is where your grief and anxiety and depression festers and grows,’ he says. ‘The enormity of this problem is paralytic.’”
“Simple, everyday actions that convey an ecologically positive message can go a long way toward helping people break out of their grief, anxiety or fear, Sherry says.”
