​A presentation & live discussion with Douglas Fischer and Kristina Marusic of Environmental Health News on the mental health impacts of oil & gas industry — December 2nd @ 2 PM.

​The Allegheny Front and Environmental Health News investigated the mental health impacts of air and water pollution and climate change in western Pennsylvania. We found alarming evidence that residents throughout the region are likely suffering changes to their brains due to pollution in the surrounding environment. ​Reporting also uncovered the growing gap in mental health care as more people are traumatized by worsening climate change.

Part 1: Feeling anxious about climate change? Experts say you’re not alone

Part 2: How to address the looming crisis of climate anxiety

Part 3: Air pollution can alter our brains in ways that increase mental illness risk
