‘Indigenocracy’- bringing together notions of citizenship with responsibility towards one another and the environment.
DR ABHAY XAXA
What is the need for mental health and climate change to permeate each other’s isolated, expert-led discourses? What is the paradigmatic change needed in conversations of CLIMATE CHANGE, MENTAL HEALTH, and their INTERSECTION? How does privileging voices from the margins inform mental health and climate change? How does climate justice shape mental health understandings of vulnerability and resilience?

Climate Anxiety: An Illness of the System
How can climate-related mental health engage with difficult conversations of DELIBERATE POWER EQUATIONS rather than viewing both mental health and climate consequences as natural givens? In which ways do identities of caste, nationality, ethnicity, religion, gender, ability, occupation, class mediate between ‘risk factors’ such as drought, overgrazing, floods, earthquakes, and the intensity of their implications? How can conversations of therapeutic care go beyond clinician rooms to policies of rehabilitation, citizenship, livelihood security, public healthcare and housing?

How do we envision mental health care in policy and services for climate induced distress? In both community care and clinical intervention, how can we incorporate a rights-based lens and respond to structural climate trauma?
