(Washington Free Beacon) — 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.
“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.
The election-season issues are also being felt on college campuses across the country, as many higher learning institutions offer mental health resources to students stunned by Trump’s victory.
George Mason University, located in the Virginia suburbs just outside of D.C., established a “healing space” on campus the day after Trump was declared the winner, according to campus-wide communications obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
