The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) invites you to attend the next Director’s Innovation Speaker Series lecture featuring Ashlee Cunsolo, PhD.
During this lecture, Ashlee Cunsolo, Ph.D. will discuss the profound, cumulative, and complex mental health outcomes of the climate crisis. Drawing on 15 years of experience working with people on the frontlines of climate change and leading global research, Dr. Cunsolo will explore diverse expressions of ecological grief and loss and how the ‘gift of grief’ and ‘gritty hope’ can furnish new ethical and political communities.
Dr. Ashlee Cunsolo is the founding Dean of the School of Arctic and Subarctic Studies and the Labrador Campus of Memorial University, a former Canada Research Chair, and a Member Emeritus of the Royal Society of Canada College of New Artists, Scholars, and Scientists. She is a leading voice internationally on climate change, mental health, and ecological grief, a regular contributor to media and policy, and editor of Mourning Nature: Hope at the Heart of Ecological Grief and Loss.
