Anguish in Arctic Scandinavia

Herding reindeer is part of a traditional way of life for an indigenous Arctic people known as the Sami. Their ancestral land — stretching across parts of Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia — is where many still live by the rhythms of centuries-old traditions.

But a mental health crisis is taking root among the Sami. It’s a complicated equation, but climate change is playing a role. I reported from Arctic Scandinavia on this mental health landscape for the GroundTruth Project podcast.
