Healthy minds, healthy climate: Managing your mental health in the climate crisis
As our world leaders gather to negotiate action on the climate crisis at a global scale, it is important to take time to reflect on a personal level. Facing critical scientific projections, witnessing and experiencing extreme weather events and dealing with a lack of leadership can leave us with a range of difficult emotions; we can feel overwhelmed, anxious, powerless, exhausted, angry, scared.
The aim of this interactive webinar is to provide a safe space to explore these feelings and learn about various coping strategies, tools to prevent burn out and ways to foster resilience and cultivate hope. Staying engaged with the challenges of climate change will help us implement solutions and create a healthy, regenerative and just future for all.

- Suhailah Ali - PhD student in the University of Queensland's School of Public Health and researcher in the Mental Health in Shock Events and Vulnerable Communities team at the Queensland Centre for Mental Health Research
