Climate Change and Well-being: Building Resilience through Social Connectedness
BC Healthy Communities Society
March 30th 2023
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM PST
CPL Units: 1

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.

In this webinar, 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 Naomi Fleshhut (Sechelt) and Jay Myers (Daajing Giids) who have used PlanH grants to address mental health issues in their communities.
