Rory is a parent, spouse, teacher, and content creator driven to help people in any possible way. Rory believes in incremental improvement, and the idea that by improving many things a little, we can affect great change over time. If you’d like to learn more about this form of self-growth, you can read ‘Atomic Habits‘ by James Clear.
UpRoryUs is Rory’s project which attempts to collect, synthesize, and codify the wisdom of countless generations of humans around the world into a comprehensive self-improvement platform that is free, approachable, and available to as many people as possible. Most content can be found on this website or YouTube.

Why is it called UpRoryUs?
I chose UpRoryUs as a title because an uproar is a loud and impassioned sound, especially one which causes a disturbance to those who are in a position of privilege. To be uproarious is to be impassioned, outraged, or moved to action in a way that is loud, public, and challenging to the norm. Because there is a strong systemic bias towards mental health education being locked behind insurance and other paywalls, I decided to launch UpRoryUs to bring that education to people free of charge. The goal here is to upset systemic imbalances that deny certain populations access to quality mental health education, and introduce a dose of equity.
How can I help?
If you want to help the channel grow, you can send questions, comments, and suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org. I use this feedback to make videos people find useful, as well as expand the equity-oriented tools I use. As an example, I provide both a close-captioned video format and a text/blog format for my content, so people can learn in a way that is useful to them.
You can also share content you enjoy on social media, so more people can get their eyes or ears on the material.
I’m in crisis, can you help?
I am not a crisis worker, please call the crisis hotline. 988 if you are in the US. I want you to be well and cared for, but I am not a medical professional, just a teacher, so please consult your local health care provider(s) when needed.
