Burning up and burning out. Human Sustainability in a Time of Emotional Climate Change

Bahia El Oddi and Carin-Isabel Knoop

Academicus International Scientific Journal, 2022, issue 25, 56-74

Abstract: The world is focused on countering climate change to guarantee our survival. But as our planet burns up, we are burning out. The costs of mental health disorders dwarf those of climate change and yet do not get commensurate attention from global leaders. Health care providers and organizations have acted first but need support of the financial markets and public decision-makers. In this paper, we argue that the economic and social toll of mental health and wellbeing issues deserve equal attention from business and public leaders because Human Sustainability is as important as Environmental Sustainability for our ability to endure and thrive as a species in harmony with others.
