The impact of climate change is far-reaching, from its impact on the environment to the economy and even our mental health. On this episode of Mind Matters, consultant psychiatrist Dr Ravivarma Rao Panirselvan joins us to discuss how climate change - and extreme weather events - are increasing the risk of mental health disorders as well as why more people are experiencing “eco-anxiety”.
If you need emotional support with any of these issues, you can call Befrienders KL 03 7627 2929, or any mental healthcare provider nearest to you.
