Everyone gets angry. It’s a natural, healthy reaction to facing situations we deem unjust, disheartening or cruel, giving us the push we need to step in and do something about it. However, anger can also make us irrational and impulsive, leading to arguments and outbursts — some of which can become violent.
When you find yourself unable to control your anger, it may be time to explore care options for anger management. In Northern California, Diamond House strives to provide everyone with a place to go where they can work through their anger and learn how to manage it in their day-to-day lives.
