The Hidden Mental Health Impacts Of Climate Change

Judith Anderson's picture


The authors of a new landmark report in the Lancet described mental health disorders as among the most dangerous of the “indirect” health effects of global warming.

 

“It will get very bad,’’ predicts  Elizabeth Haase , assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Columbia University and New York-Presbyterian Hospital, who is working on a documentary about the mental health impact of climate change. In this country alone, “we expect that over 200 million Americans will have some mental health problem because of climate change.”
