Join us for an interactive webinar with the Climate Mental Health Network to learn about the mental health impacts of climate change, especially to young people. And, learn about resources, books, and other programs to use in your work to help patrons navigate their climate emotions. Speakers include a Gen Z activist, therapist, researcher and advocate, all working on this issue together. The event will be recorded for those who cannot join live.


  1. Introduce ALA members to the issue of climate-mental health
  2. Provide resources-including books-that they can use in their work to address this issue especially May 5-11 during Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week
  3. Create space for ALA members to discuss their experiences with climate emotions and identify other resources that would be helpful

This webinar is offered by ALA Sustainability Roundtable in collaboration with the American Association of School Librarians (AASL). Attendees may receive follow up emails from AASL, ALA, or Climate Mental Health Network. For more information, review ALA’s Privacy Policy at
