There is growing evidence that the environment can play an important role in mental health—yet research into the effects of environmental stressors rarely focuses on behavioral and mental health outcomes. This virtual workshop will bring together experts in mental health and environmental health research to explore emerging research on the relationship, harmful or beneficial, between environmental factors and mental health.

Join us as we explore ways to better integrate mental and behavioral health into multidisciplinary considerations of environmental health, and consider how mental and behavioral health impacts could become part of environmental risk assessments and public health decisions.

Workshop presentations and discussions will:

• Explore new diagnostic tools and methodologies in neurobehavioral research frameworks to assess mental health effects.

• Highlight vulnerable populations, such as marginalized communities, adolescents, first-responders, and veterans.

• Identify public health actions that could help reduce the mental health impacts of environmental stressors.

This event is public and free to attend via webcast from the workshop webpage.
