Speaker: Jessica Isom, MD

Join us for a crucial discussion on how climate change is affecting mental health. Attendees will explore how climate change can make existing mental health issues worse and trigger new problems like anxiety, depression, and PTSD. Dr. Isom will explain how certain groups, such as children, the elderly, low-income communities, and those already dealing with mental health issues, are more at risk. Dr. Isom will highlight the importance of building strong communities, ensuring everyone has access to mental health services, and incorporating mental health considerations into climate change plans.
