Did you know that concern for the planet has been linked to depression? It’s true! A recent study at the University of Arizona has shown that people who care for the environment are more likely to suffer from depression. Professor Sabrina Helm showed in her work that if you care for nature, plants, and animals then you are more likely to show signs of depression than others who are concerned with just themselves.
When I hear how bad things are it makes me really sad. For example, I hate to see pictures of the burnt animals in Australia and all the destruction in the Amazon. All the negative news, destruction from storms and fires, and feeling like there is nothing you can do, can cause mental health issues (read more). Professor Helm and others call this Climate Anxiety.
A positive thing from Professor Helm’s research is that she showed that people who care are also more likely to make a difference. I bet if you are reading this it is because you want to help. When you start to make a change you will feel better. Research shows that making small changes add up. By starting to make even a small difference you can improve the situation.
Don’t feel discouraged when you hear all the bad news. There are many things to be positive about. Start small and make changes where you can. One way to start is to invest in companies that care about the planet and not just profits. We should only support ideas that protect nature, animals and you! When you do this with your money you are making a better world and supporting solutions to global problems.
