Event Description

Just as climate change strains the health of ecosystems, it also strains human health—including mental health. What changes if we consider the climate crisis a mental health crisis? What lessons can we draw from bioethics to address that crisis? And can a mental health lens help us better understand and combat other pernicious and persistent social problems of our time? A discussion at the intersection of mental health, climate change, and bioethics.
