Tribal Climate Health Training Opportunities
For the past several years, the Pala Band of Mission Indians and its partners have worked to develop the federally-funded Tribal Climate Health Project to build the capacity of tribes around the nation to prepare and address the health effects of climate change. This program offers trainings via webinar and in-person conferences and workshops listed. We would appreciate your help spreading the word to professionals that have a role in developing and managing climate change, health, and/or environmental initiatives for tribal communities. If you’ll be at these events, we’d love to meet you in person. Please connect by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please stay tuned for more details by signing up for updates through our email list at the bottom of this page.

Tribal-serving professionals are doing their best to prepare Tribes for the impacts of climate change ranging from hardening infrastructure to protecting wildlife. But have we forgotten to safeguard our wellbeing? While communities across the US are already suffering climate-related impacts to mental health and wellbeing, there is a lot we can do to better brace ourselves for the future.
Hosted by the Pala Band of Mission Indian’s Tribal Climate Health Project, this interactive three-part Tribal Wellbeing Adaptation Webinar Mini-Series will help arm tribal-serving professionals with knowledge and skills to build psychosocial, emotional, and spiritual resilience in tribal communities before the next wildfire, flood, or other emergency hits. Join peers and expert speakers to discuss emerging research, innovative perspectives, and actionable strategies. Learn more.
We’ve trained over 1,000 tribal-serving professionals. See slides under Training Materials.
