Study Links ‘Woke’ Beliefs to Increased Anxiety and Depression

A recent study in the Scandinavian Journal of Psychology suggests that individuals holding “woke” beliefs may experience heightened levels of anxiety and depression.

Conducted in Finland with over 6,000 participants, the research sheds light on the prevalence of such attitudes. Oskari Lahtinen, the study’s author, highlights the emergence of “woke” ideology in Finnish discourse.

Surprisingly, the study unveils a gender disparity, with three in five women embracing “woke” ideas compared to only one in seven men. Researchers express concern over the mental health implications of these beliefs, particularly among those endorsing certain viewpoints related to racism and social justice.
