Story here about a story that claims many people are having all kinds of breakdowns because they think Trump is going to cause all kinds of disruptions in the social issues circles.

Things like illegal immigration and hate crime targeting and transgender and Muslim targeting.

The article claims no real proof, but I suspect many people *ARE* having "issues".

All the drama is supposedly in California !!

Fake or Fact ?

Claim: Trump ‘Threatens Mental Health of Young Californians’

President-elect Donald Trump is causing mental health problems for young people in California. That’s according to claims by “advocates, educators and mental health providers” who say Californian youth are troubled by Trump’s policies towards illegal immigration, and that they feel targeted by “hate crimes” attributed — rightly or wrongly — to Trump’s supporters.

Jocelyn Wiener of Kaiser Health News, via the East Bay Times, reports: “Around the country, children and adolescents who are undocumented immigrants or who have undocumented family members, are experiencing a surge in stress, depression and anxiety, according to advocates, educators and mental health providers. The same is true for young people belonging to other groups targeted by threats or hate crimes, including Muslim and transgender youth.”

No actual proof is offered, however, either by the “advocates” or Wiener herself.

What is the proposed solution? Keep Obama? A coup to put Hillary in?

Maybe the undocumented illegals will have to start dealing with reality. Qué triste.

As they're undocumented immigrants I guess that's understandable , I would imagine they live a stressful life anyway.
It is a bit of a thin story.

The only thing causing mental problems is the media.

FFS,

Time to move out the basement and grow up, but then when you have a generation that is fixated on this crap what can you do??..

Every bloody person I know in their early/mid twenties "is going through something", was I correct in reading somewhere anti depressant use is up 400%...

Calling something for what it is does not constitute a "outcry"..

Case in point, "Illegal Immigrant" it is called such a thing for a reason, they have gained access via illegal means, rocket science it is not..

Oh "you cannot say that" they shout from their rural settings...

Safe space here, f#cking safe spaces everywhere, I am going to get some extra income and rent my f#cking shed out as a safe space, I just need to do the "risk" assessment for the circular saw and blow up sheep....

Well, suicide hotlines were inundated the day after the election.

Not sure if the claim is true or not, it wouldn't surprise me.

So if it's true... all I can say is....


BWAHAHHAHAHAHAH!!!!

I 1st have to admit I am IND. Personally, I believe Trump was part of furthering the agenda for TPTB. Many realize Trump was a small part of the Clintons circle for a number of years. TPTB won either way, regardless of election results. HRC wins, more of the same. Good for TPTB. Trump wins, many people lose their minds and things get far more extreme on both sides. Then mix in some great controversy over results. America, and it seems all Western society, becomes even more divided. Great for TPTB. Sure makes me wonder... My 2 cents worth. Eager to see more opinions here.

This was funny for a while...

But I am actually starting to get seriously concerned for the future of our country...

Have a meltdown after ward... as weird as the election was sure, I can actually understand that... still falling apart 2 months later... what the deuce...

What are these people going to do when they are told to hit the bricks because they weren't good enough to keep a job... will they find a new one... drugs... shooting spree?

I am seriously starting to have some concerns about the mental health of a sizable segment of our country...

these people had mental problems before trump ever even thought of running for president.
trump hasn`t even been sworn in yet and hasn`t done anything yet.
Their paranoid delusions are what`s exacerbating their already unstable mental conditions.

Calm down people, don't be triggered by some twisted perspective of an alt right media rag. Read past the headlines and find the truth.

It's one of those isn't it?

People listen to the drivel coming from MSM and believe it to be true. I cannot blame transgenders, immigrants or minorities for feeling anxiety and/or stress because to be frank Trump built his support on being the guy who'll "maybe make abortion illegal" or "document the undocumented" and dunno... Grab some meow?

You loved the fact he would tackle the safe space of every snowflake and revelled in being not politically correct.

Now they all have mental illness.

It's actually hilarious, do you know why?

It's funny because your economy will always demand your undocumented, Muslims won't be on any list (legally) and those who wish to change gender will still do so.


Oh and same sex marriage is a reality and abortions will still be done.

Deal with it?

At least you admitted no proof is offered in this OP. I think we're making progress.
