Anger

Being a young person is not easy and with the pressures of school, family and friends life can become frustrating. During puberty your hormones are changing and this can alter your mood very quickly. Sometimes you might not be aware of this and you may not know that you are being moody or angry. Anger is a natural reaction to feeling hurt, let down or under threat and it can take many forms. Anger can be expressed through facial expression and body language. Anger can be repressed and cause young people to withdraw or become defiant, destructive or turn to alcohol and drugs. It may be hard for some people to control their anger because they have not yet learned how to deal with their emotions. If you think that your anger is getting worse and you think you need to talk to someone, you can find help through the school nurse or GP.

Remember if the person you first speak to does not help or does not believe you then speak to someone else.
