Climate anxiety and climate grief. This sums up what many of us are feeling in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian. Category 4 hurricanes with catastrophic storm surges are becoming the norm along with more frequent tornadoes, 100 year flooding events, sustained heat waves and more.
This massive hurricane brought up a lot of feelings: horror at the size and scale of this storm, worry about loved ones in its path, and our human vulnerability when these storms strike. In the aftermath, there is a sense of relief for loved ones spared coupled with grief for those whose lives were decimated or lost. So how do we cope with these acute and chronic stressors caused by our changing climate?
The Maryland Campaign for Environmental Human Rights and the Maryland League of Conservation Voters [MDLCV] are co-hosting a conversation about Climate & Your Mental Health on Tuesday, October 25 at 7pm. Join Rebecca Rehr, Director of Climate & Justice Policy with MDLCV and Dr. Jon Gorman, Psychologist with the Towson Therapy Group for an engaging conversation about feelings caused by climate change and climate events, the impact of climate change on our mental health, and ways we can cope.
