Kognito for Faculty/Staff

The More Aware Initiative, funded by Kent State University and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services through its Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, is offering the following Kognito training:

At-Risk for Faculty and Staff

This free, interactive role-play simulation is for faculty and staff. The training builds awareness, knowledge, and skills about mental health and suicide prevention, and prepares users to lead real-life conversations with students that build resilience, strengthen relationships and connect them with support. Through the use of avatars, trainees will engage in conversations with virtual people who have memory, emotion, and can respond realistically. These simulated conversations will allow trainees to increase their confidence in recognizing symptoms of distress, having conversations with those in need, and making referrals to the appropriate services. The training lasts approximately 45 minutes.

Faculty and staff who complete the training will receive one hour of Beyond Compliance credit (please allow up to five weeks to post).
