Mental and Emotional Health = includes expressions,

Emotions are part of every person.  In Star Trek, the Vulcans were
famous for suppressing their emotions or keeping them help inside.  
This isn't always a good idea.  Our emotions cause feelings which
are temporary but powerful.  Feelings are expressed whether we
want them to or not.  Sometimes, people express feelings in positive
ways while other times, they are expressed negatively. It is
important to express feelings in a positive, healthy way  because if
they are not, they will eventually cause us or someone else harm.  

Generally speaking, Positive expressions of emotions and feelings
are Healthy for you and help you to feel better even if it's only for a
little while. The key is though that in order to be positive, they can't
be negative.

You might think "duh...no kidding they can't be negative".  Let me
explain.  A negative expression of emotions and feelings is any
action which:

hurts another person          hurts something else  OR     Hurts one's

Often times, teens who have trouble expressing their emotions and
feelings, end up hurting the friends, family and other people closer
to them by yelling and fighting with them.  They also turn to
negative things including the "wrong" friends, alcohol, marijuana
and other drugs, or self hurting such as but not limited to scratching
and cutting.  In addition, at times, they withdrawal and try to be
alone because "people just don't understand" them.

Suggestions on how to express feelings in a healthy way vary based
on the feeling.  Sometimes, you may need to cry..other times,
writing about it, talking to someone or doing something enjoyable
can help.  It all depends...

If you don't know how to express your self...get help from a trusted
adult (friends may or may not have the best answer for you
either...not that adults will all of the time).  

Anger and Anger Control

When Angry at someone, it is important to respond rather than
React.  Wait 10 seconds before saying something back...take a
deep breath...walk away and give yourself a time out.  When we
react, we often make a situation worse and say things harmful we
shouldn't have said.

anger "triggers" are different for everyone and people often make
the mistake of saying "you shouldn't get angry over that" when in
fact, we can't tell someone else what they can and can't get angry
at.  We can tell them why we don't get angry about it, or how they
can respond differently so their anger does not get expressed
negatively (hurt someone, something or one's self), and we can say
we don't understand why they got angry..but we truthfully do not
understand what the other person is feeling when they get angry.

That is not to say people that get angry have a built in excuse.  
Rules and laws need to be followed and of course, we need to try
not to hurt relationships just because one of our buttons was
pushed....getting angry is different than expressing anger.
