'ecological grief'

is the

mental health cost of climate change

The emotional and psychic toll of ecological grief (also termed "solastagia" by philosopher Glenn Albrecht) is an expanding field of inquiry among both climate scientists and mental health professionals.

There is real grief for the loss not only of possessions,

but the changing landscape that people are experiencing.- Katie Hayes

The research suggests climate-related ecological losses trigger grief experiences in multiple ways, including people grieving for lost landscapes,


species, or

places that carry personal or collective meaning.

"Ecological grief can include a vast spectrum,

whether it's specific things like eco-anxiety related to our environment,

or PTSD after experiencing an extreme weather event,"

said Katie Hayes, a PhD candidate at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto.
