The effects of climate change are evident in both the disasters prompted by extreme weather and in adverse health and mental health impacts on individuals and society. Climate change disproportionately harms vulnerable and marginalized people and communities resulting in a disparate increase in prevalence of both acute and chronic health and behavioral health conditions. This session will explore the connection between climate change, health and mental health and highlight the important roles that social workers can play in climate justice and resilience efforts.
