Kognito is an online tool that universities all throughout the United States and Maryland are using to help students, faculty, staff, and administrators learn to recognize signs of psychological distress in various student populations. Users learn how to approach at-risk students and make appropriate referrals to campus support services for screening and assessment. Users are taught to do this through online role-play conversations with virtual students. Learners attain hands-on practice managing challenging, and often sensitive, conversations surrounding mental health and master the skills necessary to identify and connect students to help. There is strong research support for the effectiveness of these programs!
The At Risk On-Campus module focuses on students experiencing problems such as depression, anxiety, and substance abuse.
This resource is free to use.
Kognito takes approximately 30-45 minutes, and you can print a certificate of completion at the end.
