“Solastalgia” is a term used to describe the feeling of grief caused by the disconnection to our natural world and witnessing the depletion of the earth’s resources. Solastalgia is on the rise and brings a host of negative mental health effects, making it difficult to be proactive in the face of so much devastation.
Dr. Sabrina Helm, a University of Arizona professor, who researches climate change anxiety, explains how we can navigate these anxieties and feel more empowered to make meaningful behavioral changes needed to mitigate the impacts of global warming.
