Prevent Bullying Now

YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE if you are an educator, counselor, youth advocate, mental health coordinator, youth pastor or parent who is looking for evidenced, & solutions-based, peer-to-peer, mental health and empathy building social emotional learning programs in bullying, suicide, substance abuse, and racism prevention. The philosophy of all Hey U.G.L.Y. programs and school assemblies isTell me and I’ll forget. Show me and I may remember. ENGAGE ME and I’ll be changed forever.

Hey U.G.L.Y. is often praised for the free content on our website, results garnered from our Empathy Learning Activity Plans (ELAPS) and school assemblies by singer/songwriters who have over-come bullying and suicidal ideation. Many educators and counselors use the FREE content on this website, especially our Self-bullying and Suicidal? pages, to help save the lives of young people who are suicidal due to bullying. We have been endorsed by educators, counselors, parents and, most importantly, students aged 7 to 17. Here is what retired guidance councelor of 28 years, Diane Waronka, says about our website: “What you have managed to put together is nothing short of amazing. The website is so complete and thorough covering every subtopic possible.” Therapist, Monica McFarland, M.S. says, “The powerful instrument that is can be employed as an adjunct to psychoteraputic work in relation to the abuses of both internal and external bullying.”

All of our school assemblies and empathy-learning activity plans come with pre- and post- questionnaires so you can report results to your funder/s, the media, Board of Education, parents, etc. Average results from post- assembly questionnaires are as follows:

86% reported not bullying anyone.
77% of students now recognize when they are having negative judgments against themselves and others.
69% of students state they learned how to cancel out negative judgments and replace them with positive thoughts.

“Hey U.G.L.Y.’s Empathy Learning Activity Plans (ELAP) are more impactful on teens and pre-teens because they work in two very different areas of learning: academic understanding and emotional experience. For the learning to go deeper, it is necessary that the learning actually shape behavior. This is where Hey U.G.L.Y.’s program is special and powerful. Every lesson creates an emotional experience, an ‘aha moment’, for the learner, and then records the feeling in some way. Students leave the learning setting with new emotional understanding about what it means to live in a successful human community.” Sue Bryant, PHD retired Principal & Teacher
