Smog in the Air and in Your Mind: A Look at the Climate Crisis and Mental Health in a Time of COVID

January 20 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am

Smog in the Air and in Your Mind: A Look at the Climate Crisis and Mental Health in a Time of COVID 

Climate crisis, COVID-19 and mental health are terms that five years ago one would never discuss in the same context. Yet here we are in 2022 with the convergence of these somewhat disparate terms in a perfect storm barreling across the globe. Although the evidence highlighting the possible linkage between climate and the COVID-19 is still under investigation, the effect of both phenomena on mental health is abundantly clear.  Stress, fear, guilt, isolation, a sense of hopelessness, anxiety, aggression, and depression are just some of the conditions that have been associated with both issues. Women of all ages and children are included among the most vulnerable groups and stand the greatest risk of experiencing these and other mental health challenges emerging during this critical period.

At our January NGOCSW meeting we hope to:

  • Raise awareness regarding the intersection of these three issues;
  • Illuminate the impact of these issues by helping our audience to understand the synergy between climate change, COVID and mental health; and
  • Present strategies that our audience may employ moving forward to navigate through these trying times and support a sustainable future.

Register here.
