You Are Not Alone

In the fight for social and climate justice, rest and self care is a radical act of resilience. Young people are facing disproportionate rates of mental illness and climate anxiety in today’s age of unprecedented trauma. Yet mental healthcare is inaccessible to those who need it most, especially for young people in frontline communities most impacted by climate change.

Our Climate is partnering with a team of licensed mental health professionals to host Resilience as Resistance: Mental Health and Climate Activism. In this free series, attendees will meet with mental health practitioners to share their experiences and discuss coping strategies to build resilience. 

Our Impact

Since launching our Resilience as Resistance: Climate Activism and Mental Health program in November of 2020, we’ve:

  • Planned and facilitated 6 Resilience as Resistance events,
  • Engaged over 170 young people in confidential roundtable discussions,
  • Partnered with 12 licensed mental health professionals and 9 Resilience Advisors,
  • Received recognition in the Ho Family Foundation Report, “Youth Leadership and Youth Engagement in Climate and Biodiversity: The need for wellbeing, resilience and mentoring support for the environmental youth movement.”

Our Goals

Our Climate recognizes the need to implement wellness programs because of the complexity of this intersectional crisis and the weight of eco-anxiety. Without mental healthcare, young activists are prone to burnout, making organizing unsustainable.

We have 3 goals for our programming:

Goal 1

Creative Program Offerings: By Q4 2023, there has been 2 Resilience as Resistance in-person events – 1 event in Florida; 1 event in PNW.

Goal 2

Creative Program Offerings: By Q4 2023, there have been 3 virtual Resilience as Resistance events with at least 90 participants. 

Goal 3

Creative Program Offerings: By Q4 2023, provide 6-8 Resilience as Resistance monthly resources to stakeholders, fellows, and young people.
