The prestigious Mayo Clinic found that that religious involvement and spirituality are associated with better physical health, mental health, health-related quality of life and other health outcomes.[1]

Future Shock is a 1970 book written by American futurist Alvin Toffler and his spouse Adelaide Farrell. The book defines the term "future shock" as a certain psychological state of individuals and entire societies. A concise definition for the term "future shock" in the book is a personal perception of "too much change in too short a period of time".

Religious people can mentally handle societal change better than secular leftists because they are mentally tougher (see: Atheism and mental toughness). The website Marketwatch reported concerning the aftermath of the 2016 presidential race: Donald Trump’s win is causing a surge in demand for mental health services.[2] See also: Secular leftists and psychogenic illness and Donald Trump and American atheists
