You are warmly invited to attend the Mental Health Foundation’s COP-26 Citizen’s Forum on Climate Change and Mental Health.
This event will bring together experts on Mental Health and Climate Change from around the world, to share what is already known about the links between climate change and mental health and to determine what research still needs to be done. It will also gather participants views on how to ensure a Just Transition, and to discuss what can be done to address this growing issue.

The climate crisis is currently damaging the mental health of hundreds of millions of people around the world and is having a growing effect on the mental wellbeing of people across the UK. We are therefore reaching out to organisations with an interest in mental health, equality and/or climate change issues to participate. We would like to invite you to join us at the event and share your views. The discussions will be used to contribute to research in this area, to inform policymakers and to shape our future work.
