Our world is facing two crises: COVID-19 and climate change. In 2017, millions of refugees were forced to flee because of disasters affected by climate change. Even beyond the physical hurdles, climate-change-related crises affect mental health. According to the American Psychiatric Association, climate change and natural disasters incur heightened anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress-disorders. Additionally, trauma and losses from displacement away from one’s community, as well as from losing a loved one, contribute to mental health disorders.

Learn more about the intersection of refugees and climate change, and donate to Blossom Hill today to assist those directly impacted by climate change.
