Psychologists/Psychotherapists for Future were founded in May 2019.
As we researched the field it became clear that climate crisis is a psychological crisis. So we found allies, other psychologists and psychotherapists to create a network of activists.
In May 2019 we published our statement together with 100 signatures. Weekly new working groups and regional groups were founded, inspiration flowed and new approaches were discussed and the network established. Our goal: Bringing our psychological / psychotherapeutical knowledge and skills into public discourse and societal influence.
The first focus was centered on „Mental Health for Activists“ and establishing connections with the diverse set of regional colleagues of the Scientists for Future.
Our goal now is to inform activists of the Fridays for Futures movement about psychological issues related to tackling the climate crisis. This includes raising awareness for possibilities to create effective social movements.
Our regional- and working groups are still growing. You are warm heartedly invited to become a part of our movement to support the neccessary societal change actively.
