Climate warming is impacting mental health: Study

Jul 28, 2019 15:40 IST

As the world grapples with the growing effects of climate change, a new study has found that growing temperatures could also lead to an increase in suicide rates. Published in the journal Nature Climate Change, researchers studied over half a billion Twitter updates and found that temperature rise could lead to an additional 21,000 suicides across the Americas by 2050. While researchers say that climate warming is neither the only nor the most important factor for suicide, it can have a surprisingly large impact on mental health.
