Kognito suicide prevention program

You okay? Wanna talk? I'm here. What's up? Let's sit. You matter.

People in distress often turn to those they know rather than seek professional help. Kognito training will give you the tools to start the conversation and make a difference. Join us in preventing suicide among fellow Hawks.

You matter in suicide prevention.

What is Kognito?

Kognito is an online, interactive role-play simulation program for students, faculty, and staff that builds awareness, knowledge and skills about mental health and suicide prevention. It prepares users to lead real-life conversations with fellow students and colleagues who are in distress and how to connect them with the support they need. 

Why is this program important?

The University of Iowa is committed to providing compassionate psychological services, outreach, and training that foster the mental health of students, nurture student success, and contribute to a safe and welcoming campus community.  It is important for students, faculty, and staff to train in early recognition, intervention, and referral.
