Online youth suicide prevention training

Be ready to address mental health concerns in young people

Screen capture of online youth suicide prevention trainingKognito's research-proven, evidence-based role-play simulations teach adults who work or live with young people how to recognize when a young person is showing signs of psychological distress, how to talk with them about it, and how to connect them to the appropriate support.

In this suite of ten free, online simulations, users enter a virtual environment and engage in role-play conversations with emotionally-responsive virtual humans. Through practice and receiving personalized feedback, users can learn and assess your competency to lead similar conversations in real life.

These trainings can be taken in more than one sitting.

Although the training simulations are based in a classroom, the information provided and practice skills gained are applicable across many settings, and parents can use the same skills when talking with their own children.

For more information about this training initiative, contact Marla Zometsky, Manager of CSB's Wellness, Health Promotion & Prevention.
