Anger is usually a symptom of an underlying cause. It can be the manifestation of an inner turmoil. Those affected may or may not know the reasons for it. Repressed anger can lead to depression, so some may argue it is better expressed. However, anger in itself can be a destructive emotion, especially if it involves the use of violence to the person concerned (self harm), to property or others. Anger can also be harmful against others in the form of personal verbal attacks, and the use of bad language.

If you have concerns that a young person you care about has difficulties controlling their anger then contact your GP for advice.
