Anger is a natural human emotion experienced in response to a perceived threat, not feeling validated or appreciated, not being treated fairly, injustice, or to avoid feelings of shame, guilt, rejection, hopelessness or helplessness. Like all human emotions, anger can and should be expressed in healthy ways.
If anger becomes very intense or persistent, or is expressed in an unhealthy way (i.e. aggressive, passive-aggressive, or suppressive), this can lead to psychological or physical health problems, interfere with performance at school, work or in social situations, or negatively impact interpersonal relationships. Meeting with a mental health professional can help you identify your anger triggers, teach you how to deal effectively with anger and other underlying painful feelings, and help you learn strategies for regulating strong emotions, improving self-control, and expressing your feelings in a healthy manner.
