Psychiatrist Dr Mashadi Motlana says when anger is not expressed people can get ill and that will require a psychiatrist.

Every person gets angry but how does one manage their anger?

Specialist Psychiatrist Dr Mashadi Motlana says it is important to express your anger but in a healthy way.

Speaking to Eusebius McKaiser, Dr Motlana says if anger is expressed in a healthy way it can improve relationships.

It is important for us to give voice to our anger so that people around us can understand us a little bit better.

Dr Mashadi Motlana, Specialist psychiatrist

Rage is a close cousin of anger but rage is when we rage towards other people and become aggressive.

Dr Mashadi Motlana, Specialist psychiatrist

Anger motivates us to do something whether to run or to fight and we can choose when we are angry to act in a way that is problem-solving.

Dr Motlana says when anger is not expressed, people get ill and the psychiatrist has to step in.

When people internalise anger we see substance abuse or it manifests in borderline behaviour that is erratic.

Dr Mashadi Motlana, Specialist psychiatrist

Psychopathology is when we internalise that anger and it makes us ill, Dr Motlana adds.

There is a real correlation of not managing our anger and what happens in the brain and our brains.

Dr Mashadi Motlana, Specialist psychiatrist
