Trump Victory Sparks Mental Health Crisis Among Dejected Dems

Liberal voters psychologically disturbed by the election of Donald Trump are seeking out care from mental health professionals, while colleges across the country seek to help students facing similar mental health crises in the wake of Trump’s surprise victory, according to interviews and reports.

Mental health professionals practicing in Washington, D.C. described an unprecedented increase in patients worried about the country’s future as a result of Trump’s victory over Democratic contender Hillary Clinton.

“This is very different,” said David Sternberg, founder and director of D.C. Talk Therapy, a psychotherapy group that practices in the District’s upscale Woodley Park neighborhood.

“This is pretty unprecedented,” Sternberg said, explaining that patients are expressing feelings of “anger, frustration, anxiety, [and] sadness.”

“A lot of current patients and clients have wanted to talk about the election,” he said, adding that moods are “the reverse” of what many patients felt in 2008 after the election of Barack Obama.

Nah, shows you how a Republican is going to toss out all the hard work we've done trying to slow and stop climate change while at the same time setting race relations back 30 years by not denouncing the white supremacists endorsing and praising him. Not too long ago on here people were going to "raise hell" and "March on the Capitol" if Hillary was elected. Don't expect democrats to sit by idly while your candidate divides an already diverse nation.

According to this article they had mental issues and needed mental help even before 2008.

“A lot of current patients and clients have wanted to talk about the election...”

I hope that this practitioner helped to dispel their anxieties about the presidency and got back to dealing with whatever brought them there in the first place.

The 'mental health crisis' among liberals is a pre-existing condition.
Fortunately, they cannot be denied insurance coverage because of pre-existing conditions.

So go get some help.

(PS: 8:48-- you sound like a good candidate. Get a grip)

I am truly amazed at the reaction that I am seeing from Hillary supporters. Maybe we can now re-grow our back bone as a country.

"current patients and clients" says they already had mental issues, and can't seem to deal with this itty bitty bit.

Nothing to see here...
