This article discusses the rise of climate anxiety.
Clinical psychologist Dr Patrick Kennedy-Williams has spent most of his career treating people with mental health difficulties, but he has found in more recent years that more climate scientists have approached him for support to help treat anxiety and depression.
He has suggested that many climate scientists and researchers face a constant bombardment of negative news and information that could lead to burn-out.
The issue of climate anxiety is not just confined to those in the field of climate research however, Kennedy-Williams has also worked with younger people and found that they also experience anxiety and stress as a consequence of reading the news about the climate.
