Youth Takes: Climate Change and Mental Health

Hear youth across the country share their experiences with climate anxiety and why it’s critical to talk about our mental health as activists – #YouthTakes 

The climate emergency is impacting the places and people we love. It’s threatening the health of our land, water, and air – and also our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. We’re experiencing increased climate anxiety and grappling with the fear of an uncertain future. But, we’re not in this alone. Focusing on our physical and mental health is critical. If we burn ourselves out, we risk our physical and mental well-being—and also the planet’s. But, we can’t fix it if we don’t talk about it. Let’s Talk About It and speak our climate truth together.
