Anger and aggression are everywhere - on the road, in the
schools, at little league games. Today's newsletter focuses
on issues related to anger and aggressive behavior.
This week the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services
Administration released a report showing that the percent of
health care dollars spent for mental health and substance abuse
treatment is down from 1987 despite the fact that approximately
28 percent of American adults experience a mental health or
substance abuse disorder in the course of any given year.
