Mental Health and Anger Management
What If I Can't Control My Anger?
If you believe that your anger is out of control and is having a negative effect on your life and relationships, seek the help of a mental health professional. A psychologist or other licensed mental health professional can work with you to develop techniques for changing your thinking and your behavior. A mental health professional can help you deal with your anger in an appropriate way. Sometimes, medicines such as antidepressants, certain anticonvulsives, and low-dose antipsychotics can also help manage sudden attacks of rage or anger. You should discuss these options with your doctor. Choose your therapist carefully and make sure to seek treatment from a professional who is trained to teach anger management and assertiveness skills.
