How can I help myself?
ANGER AND AGGRESSION
Anger is the name we give to a particular form of human energy, it is an emotion that we all experience at some point.
If you are struggling to manage anger or aggression, there is a lot of support and advice online to help you.

The Good Life Service at CPSL Mind will be running a new 8 week workshop ‘Anger and what to do about it’ for anyone 18+ living in Cambridgeshire or Peterborough. We all feel angry at times, and this is a healthy, normal emotion that only becomes a problem when it is harming you, or people around you. If your anger may be becoming destructive our 'Anger and what to do about it' workshop can help take back control. We will explore CBT style materials, opportunities to engage peer support, a space to create your own anger management plan and tool kit and encouragement to practice these learnings outside of the sessions.
To apply, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0300 303 4363
The first sessions will take place from the 18th May 2021 and they are aiming to offer at least 1 workshop per quarter.
Each workshop session will last 1 hour 45 minutes and will take place via Zoom.
