  • While anger is a normal emotion, it can be destructive to ourselves and those around us if we do not control it.
  • Anger is how some of us respond to stress.
  • When we get in touch with what drives our anger, we can make choices about how to address it.
  • If your anger is lasting a long time, or if you are expressing your anger in excessive and/or inappropriate ways, talk to your family doctor or a mental health professional.
  • Anger generally becomes less intense or disappears when it is understood. If you experience persistent anger, you may benefit from counselling.
