>> Donald Trump's election victory and Brexit are causing anxiety for almost half of Britons. The UK's Mental Health Foundation has seen a five-fold increase in visitors to its anxiety support page since the June Referendum vote. 49% of those questioned, reported experiencing anxiety specifically in relation to the US election and a new presidency.
And 43% say they've experienced anxiety over Britain's decision to leave the European Union. The YouGov survey shows women have been more deeply affected, and younger people are also feeling more anxious. The majority of those who voted leave said they'd experienced no anxiety at all in relation to Donald Trump.
UK Google trends data also shows record surges in searches for anxiety and anxiety help. In 2017, searches for both terms have reached their highest level since records began. The Mental Health Foundation advises taking a break from the news and social media if it's putting you on edge. And it's urging the government to provide better resources for those who need help.
