Climate change and mental health are two of the greatest global challenges we face.

Attention on the mental health impacts of the climate crisis has grown rapidly in the past year alone, yet the climate and mental health space remains fragmented. There is rapid progress in some places while critical gaps remain in others. Over the next year we want to work with a diverse global community to create an aligned vision and connected community of practice for research at the climate change and mental health nexus.

This is a critical time for the multi-disciplinary climate and mental health community to come together, to form an aligned research agenda that meets the needs of people experiencing these impacts and which translates into real policy change and action on the ground.

About the project

Our project will develop an inclusive and actionable research agenda for the emerging field of climate change and mental health.

Our global project team brings together experts across Imperial College London, the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre, the Climate Mental Health Network, SustyVibes, Force of Nature, St Luke’s Medical Center, the University of the West Indies and Claretian University.

The work will be deeply grounded in the needs of people with lived experience of climate impacts and mental health problems, and involve those already working in the climate and mental health space, as well as those working in the disciplines we need to bring to this field – from climate science, climate adaptation, behavioural science, health economics to public health, global mental health and clinical expertise.

Regional hubs will form communities of practice and build the field through a series of regional and global dialogues. We want you! Come along and learn about the many different ways to get involved suitable for everyone affected by or with relevant expertise and interest in this space.
