How Climate Change Affects Mental Health
Check out this great article from the Yale Climate Connections about the mental health impacts of climate change. Whether your community has been directly impacted by climate-related disasters or you're suffering from the fatigue of constant exposure to media coverage or concern for friends and relatives, it's important for us to be aware of this issue, both on behalf of ourselves as climate communicators and the members of our communities who we come into contact with.
The three big tips the article recommends for addressing the issue include sharing your feels, seeking the support of community, and getting active. These are all things we can do as part of the Climate Interpreter community.
