“Mental Health Professionals Are Talking a Lot About Headline Stress Disorder”

“Mental health professionals are talking a lot about a new disorder that has been showing up in their practices. It’s called Headline Stress Disorder, or HSD, and is defined as ‘an increase in general anxiety, worry, intolerance and lowered frustration activation.’ The 24/7 news cycle constantly bombarding our senses with negative news seems to be the chief culprit. A 2017 study by the American Psychological Association found that two-thirds of Americans report they’re stressed out over the future of the country, and constant news consumption was tapped as a likely trigger.”

—Dr. Richard Land, president of the Southern Evangelical Seminary.
