The effects of climate change on the collective mental health of people around the world have not yet been recorded. However, a recent study sheds light on how climate change affects people’s mental health, especially those directly affected by the disastrous consequences.

Scientists warn that climate change is ruining the mental health of people around the world, while finding that its costs remain hidden.

In a new report, scientists tried to understand how climate change is driving up people’s mental health problems. The report believes that heat waves are causing suicide rates to rise around the world, and adds that the loss of food security leads to depression in many people. The boys are particularly concerned about the future of planet Earth, the scientists said.

The study was led at Imperial College London by Emma Lawrance, who told The Guardian that “mental health is the invisible impact” of climate change today. Over a billion people have already faced the disastrous consequences of mental health problems. The researchers believe the easiest way to reduce the burden is to fix climate change yourself.

Creating a sense of well-being through a concerted effort to limit the negative effects of climate change could be key to limiting mental health problems.

Climate change has catastrophic effects on the environment and leads to adverse weather events that lead to natural disasters. The most common disasters are heat waves, floods and droughts. Researchers believe such disasters immensely increase people’s risk of PTSD, depression, anxiety, and the added risk of suicide.

But the risks don’t end there. Even if climate change does not have a direct impact on your surroundings, it has a lasting effect on people’s mental health due to fear of the future. The report concludes by labeling the mental health effects of climate change as “hidden costs,” implying that mental wellbeing has been ignored in policy and planning.
