Gen Z Mental Health: Climate Stories is a short documentary that explores the mental health impacts of the climate crisis to young adults worldwide, and considers what resilience means when fighting for the right to a livable planet. The film captures the emotions of a generation that may be frightened, but is anything but hopeless, saving room for stories of love, community connections, and healing.

Directed by Tehya Jennett of Stranded Astronaut Productions and produced by Paramount, Climate Mental Health Network, Hollywood Climate Summit, and Yea Impact!.

The film has closed captioning in English and is available with subtitles en Français, en Español, em Português & in Italiano.
