Eco-Anxiety: How to Cope with a Changing World

Climate and mental health specialists discuss how to deal with anxiety while staying informed in the climate change movement at a panel talk chaired by Zing Tsjeng, executive editor of VICE UK.

The panellists discuss the newly coined term ‘eco-anxiety’: anxiety arising from feelings of hopelessness surrounding climate change.

In recent years, the swell of activism and conversation around our swiftly changing world has grown, leading to more explicit public discussions about the threat of climate breakdown.

Undoubtedly, this chorus of voices is beginning to make an impact on those in power, but at the same time, the rise in public awareness is leading to an increase in those seeking therapy and support for eco-anxiety.

This event is part of Southbank Centre’s Reading the Mind series, exploring mental health and well-being through literature.
