Help MHCCA Develop Climate Change Communication Tools

Help the Mental Health and Climate Change Alliance (MHCCA) develop tools that help people like you talk about climate change in a trauma-informed, mental health aware way.

MHCCA is now recruiting people to help develop tools and resources that will make a real difference in how we are talking about climate change and its impacts.

If you are selected to participate in this project, you will take part in an online focus group. As a follow up, you may be invited to participate in reviewing the documents that are developed to help person-to-person communication about climate change and mental health. You will receive an honorarium of $50 to $100, depending on your level of participation.


A Canadian not-for-profit organization, the Mental Health and Climate Change Alliance is a community of interdisciplinary researchers, healthcare providers, and community organizers committed to identifying and addressing the adverse impacts of the climate crisis on mental health. MHCCA leads research projects that aim to build resilience to the adverse mental health effects of climate change. MHCCA produces the Journal of Mental Health and Climate Change – an open-access publication featuring scientific research on mental health and climate change.
