What is anger?

Anger is a normal, healthy emotion. However, it can be a problem if you find it difficult to keep it under control (NHS 2016). As young people transition through their teenage years, they can experience a range of emotions.  Anger is one of many of these emotions that at time can be justified but can also cause confusion and distress.  

Anger can manifest itself into:

- Aggression

- Shouting

- Loosing control

- Other forms of negative behaviour.  

There could be a range of reasons that underpin why a young person gets angry such as problems at home, school, unhappy thoughts or feelings, friendship breakdown, not feeling understood, not able to express oneself, confusion around sexuality or gender, experience of being bullied or abused.  It is important that anger problems are recognised so that support can be put in place to prevent further problems resulting from anger issues such as violence, self harm, addiction and other disorders (Young Minds 2016).
