Mental health concerns and emotional distress can cause a range of intense emotions, such as anger and frustration. Anger is not a negative emotion itself, but when it is not managed well, it can negatively impact your mental health and well-being, as well as your relationships and work. The good news is that anger can be managed effectively with the right approaches and guidance. At Peer Mental Wellness, we understand the importance of anger management and have incorporated it into our outpatient mental health treatment programs. Our anger management program in Los Angeles features evidence-based and holistic approaches to help individuals learn how to manage their anger and build healthier relationships.

Anger and Mental Health
Anger responses can be triggered by various factors and can present themselves in various ways. For example, feeling angry may be a symptom of depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder. If not appropriately treated, anger can also lead to more severe emotional and behavioral problems. Adequately addressing and managing anger is essential for positive mental health and well-being.
Some of the signs that you could benefit from Anger Management classes include:
- You find yourself getting angry or frustrated easily
- You often act out in anger, resulting in destructive or aggressive behavior
- You have difficulty calming yourself down when feeling angry
- Your anger is negatively impacting your relationships and work performance
- You are overly critical of yourself or others
If any of the above apply, the anger management program at Peer Mental Wellness can help.
