It's Not Just You, Hardback Book

It's Not Just You Hardback

Hardback

Description

It's not just you. The climate crisis is making us all unwell. But not just you. The climate crisis is affecting certain communities disproportionately. And it's not just the climate crisis... During recent years, the term 'eco-anxiety' has been popularised to talk about the negative impact of the climate emergency on our wellbeing.

In It's Not Just You, climate activist Tori Tsui reframes eco-anxiety as a mental health crisis that encompasses many injustices and is deeply entrenched in racism, sexism, ableism and, above all, capitalism. This is the first intersectional book to explore the relationship between mental health and the climate crisis.

Tori Tsui draws on the wisdom of diverse environmental advocates who have been on the frontlines long before eco-anxiety became an issue in the global north.

Chapters include interviews with marginalised activists including BIPOC, activists from the global south, women, queer activists and disabled activists. As someone who suffers from mental health conditions, Tori argues that fights for intersectional climate justice must incorporate our wellbeing and how this is a direct reflection of our environment.

Tackling eco-anxiety requires looking both inwards and outwards, addressing our own mental health while also advocating for the world's most marginalised and the planet.

The solution is embracing individuality over individualism, while also striving to build community and collective action.
