Learn how to help distressed students

For Students:

You may notice significant amounts of stress or other mental health concerns experienced by fellow students. As members of the campus community, it is every student’s responsibility to look out for their friends and peers who may be in serious distress.

To address this concern, I invite you to take a 30-minute online simulation that will assist you with approaching others that you are concerned about and referring them to support services on campus. Student leaders who have already completed the training have described it as engaging and worthwhile.

To access the training, follow the instructions below:

  1. Go to:
  2. You will need to create an account.  In the “Sign In” box, locate “Don’t have an account? Click Here.”
  3. Create your account by filling in requested information.  For “Choose your Training POV” select University or College Student.
  4. Next, select Salisbury University as your institution. Fill in remaining demographic information requested.  Hit “Next” to go to Step 2.
  5. Click “Done” when you fill in remaining demographic information requested in Step 2.
  6. You will be logged in automatically.  Before proceeding, make sure your computer will temporarily allow “pop-ups” from this website.
  7. At the top, you will see several options of courses. Please make sure “at-risk for students” is highlighted in an orange box, then select “Launch”
  8. Kognito Training will begin.  Upon conclusion of the training, print certificate of completion for your records.

For Faculty & Staff:

Nationally, students are reporting increased levels of distress, putting them at risk for depression, substance abuse and a host of other consequences. As members of this campus community, we are all committed to not only the academic success of our students, but also their well-being.

To address this concern, we invite you to complete a 45-minute interactive online simulation as soon as possible. While the simulation uses a classroom and office setting, the information and skills you will learn, apply to faculty and staff. The training will help you:

  1. Identify students experiencing high levels of distress
  2. Approach and discuss your concern with a student in distress
  3. Make an effective referral to support services (if necessary)
