Nassau, Bahamas - Minister of Social Services and Urban Development, the Hon. Frankie Campbell presented certificates to graduates of the Ministry’s Urban Renewal Department’s Anger Management and Life Skills Programme at the Our Lady’s Catholic Church Hall on Wednesday, December 19.

The theme for the graduation was “More than a Conqueror” and the programme is designed as a six months course which runs continually.

Counsellor and facilitator for the programme, Pastor Eric Fox engages participants in areas such as anger, emotion, societal influences, instinct and relationship issues.

“Anger is a natural emotion given to all by God; I urge you to place your anger and use it for change. You should get angry about the garbage that lines our streets, about the rodents and about the young men and women wasting their potential hanging out on the blocks. You should be angry about the social ills we face daily.”

He also lauded Pastor Fox for seeing the need for such a programme and offering to help those in need of assistance in urban communities.

Minister Campbell and Pastor Fox encouraged the graduates to find solutions to the social ills rather than retaliate in a negative manner.
