Abstract: Background this study aims to determine students practice in good anger management skills and to what extent their anger will affect their study, work and social communication. This study evaluated the relationship between anger management and mental health of medical students. In addition, a survey was conducted to determine the duration and consequences of anger among medical students. Materials and methods. The newly developed questionnaire was used, including the simplified Novaco anger scale and provocation scale, and the modified patient health questionnaire 9 (used to measure mental health). The consequence data show that although students with high anger tendency show poor mental health, there is no evidence to show thislowering of the mental health PHQ-9 score as the anger management technique’s effectiveness rises. “Friends” was cited as the major triggering factor for anger, whereby the feelings can last for up to a day and somewhat affect their concentration on normal activities. Conclusion. When anger is suppressed and not let out, it can be an underlying factor for anxiety and depression. Therefore, more emphasis needs to be placed on educating students on how to manage their anger especially in a stressful environment away from home.
