CICMH Webinar: Empowering Students to Overcome Climate Anxiety

November 24, 2022


When it comes to climate change, studies have shown that youth are more likely to report mental health concerns in comparison to older generations. In this webinar, EENet is joined by two nursing professionals, Natania Abebe, a double master’s graduate in Nursing and Public Health and Raluca Radu, lecturer in the School of Nursing from the University of British Columbia, to talk about the relationship between climate change and mental health. The guests will present an interactive resource toolkit that was developed as part of Natania’s graduate project which focused on climate change and mental health. This presentation aims to explore strategies for supporting students experiencing eco-anxiety. The presentation will be followed by a question and answer period.
