The weekend sucide of Georgia resident Andrew Veal, 25, who reportedly killed himself with a shotgun blast to the head at Ground Zero in New York City illustates the degree of depression and rage that some Democrats feel over John Kerry's loss. This Post Election Selection Depression is by not means relegated to just a few.

The unfortunate suicide of 25 year old Andrew Veal of Georga over Senator John Kerry's loss last week illustrates the degree some supporters might go. What is being called "Post Election Selection Depression" is by no means relegated to just a few. Many throughout this country have been traumatized by not just President Bush's narrow victory, but John Kerry's narrow loss.

In an effort to minimize Post Election Selection Depression or PESD many feel, The American Health Association is offering free PESD support groups with licensed mental health clinicians through the end of the year,or until this divide between Republicans and Democrats subside.

Post Election Selection Depression is like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder only short-term said Rob Gordon, the Boca Raton based Executive Director of the American Health Association, himself a registered mental health counselor intern. "But PESD like any other mental health disorder essentially without treatment can lead to catastrophic consequences like the incident with Andrew Veal" continued Gordon.

Its important that anyone feeling withdrawn, isolated, loss of appetite, sleepless and emotionally angry and bitter over Senator John Kerry's loss seek professional counseling or join a PESD support group. Those in South Florida are more than welcome to call The American Health Association at 561 361 9091.
