Climate Change and Well-being: Building Resilience Through Social Connectedness
Event: March 30, 2023 at 10 am (PST)
Climate change has had an immediate and personal impact on our health. Evidence suggests that a changing climate leads to increased stress and anxiety due to the occurrence of extreme weather events, displacement from homes and economic disruption. Climate anxiety is a rapidly growing issue, especially for youth. Join SFU Assistant Professor Dr. Kiffer Card, a behavioural epidemiologist, social ecologist, and health services researcher, as he examines how socio-ecological forces relate to mental health, stigmatized behaviour and health inequalities. Joining Dr. Card will be Caz (Carolyn) Beaumont and Jay Myers – both from the Village of Daajing Giids – who have used PlanH grants to address mental health issues in their communities.
