Kognito At-Risk Mental Health for Students

 

 

From keeping up with classes to personal relationships–and everything in between–we all face stressors and anxiety in our lives. Throughout your college journey it will be important to prioritize and take care of your emotional health. During your time in college, you will also have many opportunities to positively impact the lives of your classmates. Your commitment to your health and well-being comes with a shared commitment to the health and well-being of fellow students. Our strength is found through our community.

The Kognito At-Risk Mental Health for Students simulation is designed to teach skills you can use to support your own emotional health and that of your peers. You will learn how to identify those in distress, how to effectively reflect and communicate your concerns, and how to appropriately refer to resources. Being able to recognize when someone is struggling is important to building a strong support network. Our goal is to empower our campus community to be there for each other. If you’re concerned about someone, trust your gut. Let your friends and classmates know you’re there for them.

The Kognito At-Risk Mental Health for Students lets you practice conversations with a virtual student, so you’ll know what to say in real life. La Salle University students are required to take this 34-minute training course in order to learn how to determine when a friend needs help, how to talk with a friend who you’re worried about, and where you and your friend can turn to for help.
