We all get angry. Anger is one of the most basic human emotions. It is a physical and mental response to a threat or something that has already happened. Anger takes many different forms from irritation to blinding rage or resentment that festers over many years. Anger is different for each of us.

 Anger is necessary to our survival as individuals and in communities. But it can do harm to individual health and wellbeing and it can occasionally contribute to violence and tragedy.  Most of us deal with anger in a healthy way. But for some of us anger can sometimes become a problem. Even if you don’t always express anger, it doesn’t mean you don’t feel it.

 Problem anger has been linked to a range of physical, mental health and social problems.

 Don’t let anger get the better of you…
