Kognito Mental Health Training


Conversations Can Change Lives

Have you ever been worried about a student or friend on campus? Faculty, staff, and students are in an ideal position to recognize when someone is struggling emotionally and may need help. Kognito At-Risk Mental Health for Students and Kognito At-Risk Mental Health for Faculty & Staff are online simulations that let you practice conversations with a virtual student, so you’ll know what to say in real life. By completing this training, you can help create a safer and more supportive campus.
