Conversations can change lives.
Have you ever been concerned about a student or friend on campus? Unsure of what to say or how to offer support? Kognito At-Risk Training can help!
Kognito At-Risk is an interactive role-play simulation that helps users build awareness, knowledge, and skills about mental health and suicide prevention. There is a platform specifically targeted to student users and another for faculty and staff. It prepares students, faculty, and staff to lead real-life conversations with students in distress and connect them with support.
