"The survey's findings that more men than women are actively seeking medical help for Trump-induced anxiety is contradictory to established psychological research which has repeatedly shown that men are less likely than women to seek help from physicians and mental health professionals," added Stosny. "What we are experiencing now is a new phenomenon where men, facing an onslaught of continued breaking new alerts, social media comments and alternative facts, feel that they no longer have the control or ability to protect their families in these uncertain times."
CareDash, an online healthcare portal that seeks to democratize the doctor review industry through 100% honest and transparent reviews, commissioned the poll by Radius Global Market Research to better understand how the current political environment is affecting the mental health of their users and the general population. The current study findings mirror those found in an online poll of CareDash newsletter subscribers which found that 55% of respondents are at least somewhat anxious because of the November election results.
"The mission of CareDash is to empower all patients to take charge of their own healthcare decisions," says Ted Chan, Founder and CEO of CareDash. "This poll continues our core objective to be a resource for transparent information that will ultimately enable patients to make more informed healthcare choices. Our hope is that by understanding the root cause of mental health issues that many Americans are facing today, patients will be better equipped to seek ways to address those issues, either through CareDash.com or other professional services available to them."
CareDash will also host a free "CareDash Coping Clinic" on Friday, April 28 in Boston to help Bostonians with some of their post-election anxiety. City residents are invited to stop by the one day downtown location pop up during lunchtime for a quick mid-day stress-relieving break and enjoy a free 15-minute chair massage, a warm cup of relaxing tea and healthy snacks.
The survey was conducted online within the United States by Radius Global Market Research on behalf of CareDash between March 23-27, among 2,135 adults ages 18+ who reside in the U.S. Surveys were conducted in English. Data were weighted to reflect U.S. Census data. Weighting variables included age, gender and region.
The symptoms of anxiety included in the survey are the most common symptoms of anxiety as provided by the National Institute of Mental Health and the Mayo Clinic and include weight gain, weight loss, depression, suicidal thoughts, trouble sleeping, feelings of nervousness, relationship distress and resentment or anger.
