Climate change has had an immediate and personal impact on our health. Evidence suggests that a changing climate leads to increased stress and anxiety due to the occurrence of extreme weather events. Climate anxiety is a rapidly growing issue, especially for youth.

SFU Assistant Professor Dr. Kiffer Card, a behavioural epidemiologist, social ecologist, and health services researcher, examines how socio-ecological forces relate to mental health, stigmatized behaviour and health inequalities. Caz (Carolyn) Beaumont and Jay Myers – both from the Village of Daajing Giids – shared their experience working in this small, coastal BC community.
