KOGNITO TRAININGS

Help a friend who is struggling  Support veterans as they adjust to college life Support for students in distress

CCC Student Mental Health Programs provide a suite of interactive, research-proven Kognito Trainings to educate students, staff and faculty on the best practices in supporting students who struggle with psychological distress. Online training simulations using avatars are available to Mt. San Jacinto College students, staff and faculty to help gain skills around mental health and suicide prevention.

Kognito has two different learning modules, a peer-to-peer training for students and a faculty and staff module to help campus employees interact with students in possible distress. 60 percent of college students experience periods of overwhelming anxiety, and more than one-quarter of students experience feelings of depression. For 15 percent of the student population, those feelings directly affect their academic performance. Sometimes all it takes is one person to make all the difference.
