Editorial: The climate and ecological mental health emergency - evidence and action.

The implications of the climate crisis for children and young people in relation to their mental health and well-being, and, as a corollary, the implications for mental health professionals are examined.

Quantifying uncertainty in aggregated climate change risk assessments.

A methodology to transparently assess uncertainties within the 'Reasons for Concern' framework, using extreme heat as a case study, quantitatively discriminate multiple dimensions of uncertainty, including future vulnerability and exposure to changing climate hazards.

Supporting adolescent mental health in humanitarian settings: To what extent do interventions consider climate change and its intersectional impacts?

Research suggests that adolescents in humanitarian settings are particularly vulnerable to mental health challenges, but there is less attention to how mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS)

Equity, technological innovation and sustainable behaviour in a low-carbon future.

The world must ambitiously curtail greenhouse gas emissions to achieve climate stability. The literature often supposes that a low-carbon future will depend on a mix of technological
