Read the case study

As men we all get angry

The best thing we can do is talk to somebody

Don’t hesitate

Don’t be whakamā

Just pick up that phone


So what happens when I get angry?

First of all, I think my emotions & thoughts get the best of me. Things start feeling hot, my hands start getting a bit sweaty.

Sometimes I just wanna pick stuff up and, smash it or break it, just to make myself feel better, it’s definitely some hands on.

There’s definitely been a lot of pushing and shoving, even screaming.

Can’t believe some of the things I’ve just said, or done, and how I have made my partner or my kids feel...
