Founder of the Climate Mental Health Network, passionate about using media, arts and culture for emotional resilience and wellbeing in the face of the climate crisis.
I founded the Climate Mental Health Network in 2021 after my own struggles with climate anxiety. I previously worked in the media impact space and am passionate about using media, arts and culture to de-stigmatize climate-mental health issues to get people tools and resources to help them develop more emotional resilience and overall wellbeing in the face of the climate crisis.
Climate Mental Health Network addresses the mental health consequences of climate change through education, community engagement and by harnessing the power of media and technology.
I'm guided in my work by an incredible Gen Z advisory board which informs much of our vision and programming. We have already produced a short documentary film, GEN Z MENTAL HEALTH: CLIMATE EMOTIONS and an arts therapy guide. We have also consulted with a museum on programming. I hope that we can collaborate more with institutions (e.g. museums) on programming and artists and content creators to develop more programs and resources.
