2tough2bully™ is a bullying prevention program for schools. It’s designed as an interactive and informative campaign that combines educational sessions with communication materials and other important resources.
Bullying has a multifaceted relationship with mental health issues. It’s both triggered by and results in mental illnesses. This is why the 2tough2bully™ program is designed to educate and empower young people to effectively tackle bullying—whether they are a bully themselves, a victim, or even a witness.
Over the years, our highly experienced MHAGC counselors have helped many schools in Chicago to successfully support their students to stand up against bullying and create a voice. We have also helped parents and educators to create the right support system to end bullying.

2tough2bully™ is specifically developed to help tackle bullying by educating young people.
But we believe that teachers and parents also have an active role to play in terms of both support and prevention.
That’s why our bullying prevention program uniquely targets the students, educators, and parents for a more effective and permanent outcome.
