kognito conversations that change livesWelcome to Kognito. Kognito is a set of role-play, avatar modules to educate faculty, staff, and students about mental health and suicide prevention.

Benefits of Kognito include:

  • Recognizing signs of emotional distress in others
  • Learning effective ways to respond
  • Effective strategies for referring someone to resources
  • The ability to proceed at your own pace.

Each simulation exercise allows faculty, staff and students to practice conversations that help build resilience, strengthen relationships, and develop connections with campus resources. Through role-play, users build knowledge and skills around mental health and suicide prevention. Kognito is also designed to support academic performance, student retention, and campus safety.
