A survey from the Maple Counseling Center in California shows that over 50% of the population say the election is affecting their mental health, and that they also have a fear of violence and what will happen to human rights, a Greenwich mental health counselor says.
Stephanie Haen, with Family Centers in Greenwich, says that a survey from LifeStance Health shows over 38% say they are having trouble sleeping. She says on top of the election is the COVID-19 pandemic, making it a challenging time for everyone.
