How Extreme Heat & Heatwaves Impact Public Health
Mental Health Impacts
Climate change poses a serious threat to public health. Many people now recognize that effects like extreme heat, storms, air pollution, and wildfires are hazardous to physical health, but fewer realize that mental health can be equally compromised by these large changes to our environment.
