Voices in Health: “Climate Change Events, COVID, and Mental Health”

 

Citizens in British Columbia (BC) are being impacted by multiple intersecting crises: the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, opioid crisis, and racism. Rural communities in BC are inequitably impacted by the same. The goal of this research is to better understand the mental health impacts of climate change events and COVID-19 to facilitate individual and community resilience. Data are being collected in three rural communities: Ashcroft, Burns Lake, and Keremeos via surveys and community consultations. Deliberative dialogues will then be held in each community to share the results and co-create recommendations for actions to foster resiliency. This presentation will provide preliminary results on the survey data.
