Anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and suicidality will continue to increase as temperatures rise and more people experience extreme weather events. According to research, for every single person affected by a climate disaster in a physical way, 40 people are affected mentally and emotionally. Young people, elders, and people from marginalized BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) communities are particularly vulnerable to climate impacts and are disproportionately affected. Also, people from these communities often have special expertise, and practices for resilience.
