Our research highlights

Working with young people

We have explored how the dual crises of climate change and mental health are impacting the wellbeing of young people around the world, including in the UK. See our publication in The Lancet.

Synthesising evidence

Our reviews of the literature explore the ways in which climate change and mental health are linked, particularly rising temperatures.

Making recommendations

Our briefing paper highlights opportunities for improving mental health and emotional wellbeing though climate action, and our Delphi study develops global recommendations across sectors.

We are committed to better understanding the problem and developing appropriate responses.
