Title: On the effect of flooding on mental health

Sébastien Foudi (Research Fellow, Basque Centre for Climate Change – BC3)

 

Abstract

Post-traumatic stress due to floods is a source of subjective well-being reduction but has rarely been studied in the literature. We conducted a survey to study the mental stress resulting from flooding. We use flood-specific and non-flood-specific indices to assess changes in well-being based on the Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, the General Health Questionnaire and a self-reported score. Our results show that the combination of water depth and flow velocity is an important stressor and highlight how human and community resilience can be boosted to reduce psychological distress.

During the seminar, the results of the mental health impacts survey will be presented together with preliminary results from the contingent valuation of flood stress.
