"I have had about a handful of clients express fear and profound sadness about the election. Two of them, men, said they shed tears and feel hopeless," says one therapist.
"A handful of my clients reached out last night and today with feelings of stress and many of my female clients who are struggling with anxiety and self esteem issues have stated that they have been tearful and feel devalued due to the underlying message the election has sent," says another.
"I had 27 clients expressing serious concerns over the election," says a third. "One reports that he was bedridden because of his severe anxiety related to the election. Some are reporting that they drank to relieve their stress and anxiety. Most of my clients concerns are related to: access to healthcare, lowered wages, discrimination, fears of our country being invaded, being physically harmed because they are members of minority groups, and general sense of hopelessness."
