Description

While public health programs focus on providing short-term assistance during and after major climate events, the public also needs long-term strategies to cope with the strain that rising, ongoing climate change has on mental health and psychosocial well-being. The International Transformational Resilience Coalition and APHA are proud to host this workshop, which will illustrate how public health professionals can help build widespread resilience for the traumas and toxic stresses of climate change.
