Abstract: Climate change and disaster events are growing reality in communities across the globe. Climate-change induced disaster events can cause significant psychological harm and result in a range of mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder in individuals exposed to disaster events. Jennifer First will discuss her research examining the mental health impacts of climate-change and disaster events and the development of tools and resources to support wellbeing and resilience.
