Climate Change and Mental Health: Uncertainty and Vulnerability for Alaska Natives

This bulletin provides an academic review of the mental health effects to Alaskan Natives as a result of climatic changes, including impacts associated with more extreme weather events, sea-level rise, changes to the local environment, and alterations to subsistence resources. Potential responses for mental health providers and communities-at-large are outlined, such as conducting vulnerability assessments, creating post-incident recovery environments, increasing the awareness of mental health effects associated with climate change, and monitoring activities.
