Help a friend who is struggling with Kognito At-Risk

Kognito At-Risk for College Students

Are you concerned about a friend? Want to learn some strategies for helping someone you care about?

Kognito At-Risk for College Students and Student Leaders is a 30-minute, online, interactive, self-paced simulation that prepares college students to provide support to peers who are exhibiting signs of psychological distress. This unique tool trains you to recognize signs of psychological distress such as depression and anxiety, substance abuse, and suicide ideation. Completion of this training gives you the knowledge, skills, and confidence that allows students to identify, approach students in crisis. Additionally, you will learn how to refer an at-risk student to counseling, mental health, or crisis support services. Participants learn effective communication tactics for managing difficult conversations and how to avoid common pitfalls of gatekeeper behavior, such as giving unwarranted advice. Completing Kognito training also reduces stigma around mental health issues and increases the protective factor of promoting help-seeking behaviors.
