Eco-anxiety is a type of anxiety related to the increase in environmental disasters and ongoing climate crisis according to Anxiety Canada.

It can affect anyone, but is seen mainly in Gen Z and Millennials. “Close to 40% of Gen Z surveyed also said that fears about the future have made them reluctant to have children one day,” as stated by Anxiety Canada.

Watch Ashley Keller speak with Quebec based psychologist Inês Lopes about how to overcome the strong emotions brought on by eco-anxiety.
