Young Minds

We’re leading the fight for a future where all young minds are supported and empowered, whatever the challenges. We’re here to make sure they get the best possible mental health support and have the resilience to overcome life’s difficulties.

The crisis in children and young people’s mental health is real and it is urgent. More children and young people than ever before are reaching out for help with their mental health. But for those who take that brave step, help is much too hard to find.

Parent Help

Helping young people understand their anger:

Anger is often seen as a negative emotion, but it is a natural state and one of the core emotions we all experience. Different people may be triggered by different things, and anger often occurs when we feel threatened, frustrated or powerless. However, it can become a problem if a child finds themselves getting angry a lot but without really knowing why, or if it is expressed through destructive behaviour.

Anger can often be a sign that there are things going on in a pupil's life that they need help with. As school staff, we know that children and young people can face lots of adversity, and that this can lead to them feeling angry and behaving inappropriately. So it's important that we try to understand what the triggers might be for the pupils in our schools. It's also important that young people can make sense of how they’re feeling, so this email is packed with resources to help your pupils better understand their anger and find ways to cope.
