Things to remember in dealing with an aggressive person

Mentally ill people are not naturally violent; a number of different reasons can lead a person with a mental illness to become violent.

Psychoses, alcohol and drug misuse are the important mental health problems that may be associated with violence.

Violence almost always affects friends and relatives. Remember to counsel those affected and explain what you are doing and why.

While you should be concerned about the safety of others, your primary goal must be to protect,

understand and help the person.

Use of medicines and restraining techniques may be required to calm someone with a mental illness who becomes aggressive.
