Connecting Climate Minds - Call for Case Studies (banner)-02.jpg

Connecting Climate Minds is looking for case studies from Latin America and the Caribbean that will showcase examples of excellence in research or practice at the intersection of climate change and mental health.

Objectives:

The selected case studies will be used:

  • to document exemplary interventions at the nexus of climate change and mental health that can be adopted or adapted by stakeholders around the world;

  • as a resource for researchers and policymakers interested in the climate change and mental health nexus;

  • for advocacy and information dissemination, for instance on the project website and social media;

  • as examples for regional and global reports; and

  • featured on the Global Online Hub.

Types of Eligible Case Studies:

The case studies may be any of the following types:

  • Problem / Community Case Study

    • ​A pressing and unique issue at the interface of climate change and mental health that is affecting a specific community or country, which either has been receiving growing attention or is currently being neglected

  • Intervention / Practice Case Study

    • ​An existing intervention or practice implemented by a community, organization, or country that attempts to tackle or is already effectively (supported by anecdotal or even research-generated evidence) addressing the mental health impacts of climate change (for instance, cross-sectoral initiatives, specific individual-level interventions, etc.)

  • Policy Case Study

    • ​A policy (such as a law, guideline, etc.) that is either existing or proposed at local or national level that aims to address the mental health consequences of climate change, environmental problems, and other climate-induced natural disasters

  • Research Case Study

    • ​Innovative research methods, creative use of existing datasets, or development of new ones that advance knowledge on climate change and mental health at local, national, and regional levels

Criteria:

Case studies will be assessed for:

  1. Clear relation to the nexus of climate change and mental health;

  2. Rich description about the population or the intervention;

  3. Feasibility within a short time frame, as demonstrated in the data collection methods described and references identified;

  4. Credibility - i.e. real-world example that is relevant to accelerating understandings of the climate change and mental health nexus and to advancing research, policy, and practice; and

  5. Unique insights (e.g., strong reflection of lived experience perspectives; geographic and cultural diversity within the region)

Deadline for Submissions:

Monday 25th September 2023
