Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. I am very sorry that your son is having these issues with anger and aggression, I can understand how difficult and frustrating this can be for you. Unfortunately the only person that can help your son is himself as he has to volunteer himself to receive mental health treatment in order to get his aggression and anger in check before he possibly breaks the law and it becomes court-ordered. I know you want to help your son, but if he is not willing to help himself than there is not much that can be done as all the effort in treatment will have to come from him,.
