WIMS Live: Climate Change and Mental Health

As the realities of climate change become increasingly clear, many of us are experiencing anxiety.

More and more of us are worried around the fate of the planet, those of us that inhabit it and what lies ahead for future generations.

In this webinar, we discuss some of the ways in which eco-anxiety manifests itself in our day-to-day lives, how it's a natural response to a serious issue, how taking action can help to empower us and ease feelings of helplessness, and how nature and the environment can support us in recovery and maintaining wellbeing.

As serious as climate change is, this conversation will also strike notes of hope and empowerment for those of us feeling a bit overwhelmed or helpless in the face of the crisis.
