The term “global climate change” - one of the biggest challenges for human beings this century - refers to the direct or indirect influence of the climate on human activities. Climate change has cognitive, emotional and behavioral effects on individuals and, for most, these psychological effects could be gradual and cumulative. According to current research, coping strategies for dealing with climate change include those that are problem-focused, emotion-focused and meaning-focused. Meaning-focused approaches might be the most beneficial option for mental health. Defining and quantifying important concepts, articulating whether there are correlations between coping strategies and mental health and investigating the features of Chinese coping strategies are avenues for future work.

Keywords climate change      psychological impacts      coping strategies      meaning-focused coping
