Abstract: This paper discusses the concept of aggression and the conditions under which aggressive behaviour is developed. It reports that, frustration, conflicts, and pressures when unresolved, or when the stress threshold is exceeded, are factors instigating mental health problems and aggressive behaviour. It describes the term mental health education as the application of theories and principles in education, psychology, sociology and medicine, in the attainment of mental health. It also examines the role parents, school administrators and the government can play in managing aggressive behaviour. Some of the suggestions include: creating a congenial environment for growth, avoidance unhealthy competitions, building self concept and self esteem
