This announcement positions the Mental Health Association of Greater Chicago, also known as MHAGC, as a leading developer of mental health programs for schools.

Bullying has become a prominent issue in American schools. Studies by the National Bullying Prevention Center indicate that 1 in every 5 students in grades 1 to 12 reported being bullied in the last year. They also report that bullying education programs can reduce bullying by at least 25%.

MHAGC’s updated 2Tough2Bully program responds to these trends by empowering students to take a stand against bullying in a positive way. The course aims to foster an internal toughness within students so they do not bully others or allow others to bully them.

The course covers a range of modules, including understanding bullying, cyberbullying, bias-based bullying, bullying and the media, and bullying prevention. The modules use learning methods like presentations, class activities, and videos to engage students.

2Tough2Bully also includes materials for teachers, including in-depth lesson plans. This enables teachers to seamlessly implement the curriculum in their classroom with little to no additional work on their part.

Besides the 2Tough2Bully program, MHAGC has also developed Learning2Live, a curriculum dedicated to mental health education and reducing the stigma surrounding mental health issues. The program was developed by a school principal, a teacher, and a school psychologist, all of whom hold doctorates in their respective fields.

Founded in 1957, the Mental Health Associated of Greater Chicago has since developed a strong reputation for its work developing high-quality educational programs regarding mental illness. With this update, the organization reaffirms its commitment to providing teachers and students with the tools they need to create a safe and supportive school environment.

A spokesperson for the organization said: “Our mission is to maximize the mental and emotional wellness of the youth, adults and families of our communities by promoting prevention and increasing empowerment through our education, collaboration and support programs.”
