CAHA is proud to be supporting Deakin University, Monash University and the ABC in addressing this critical evidence gap. We have teamed up to study the mental health impacts of climate change among Australians through a national survey.
It has been a challenging year for us all – and 2020 has brought with it an increase in mental health concerns for Australians.
While we deal with the public health challenges of coronavirus, the threat of climate change looms in the background.
There is strong evidence that climate change negatively affects our mental health, but more research is needed to understand the growing list of worries related to climate change. We don’t know who is affected and how many; how they are feeling; and how they cope with the climate crisis in Australia.
Again, we are proud to support Deakin University, Monash University and the ABC in addressing this critical evidence gap. We have teamed up to study the mental health impacts of climate change among Australians through a national survey.
We strongly encourage our partners, members and the Australian public to get involved. The survey takes 10 minutes to complete online and is open to anyone in Australia over 18 years old. You can complete the survey here.
