Feedback from undergrads, grad students, postdocs and faculty at UAB indicates that stress, anxiety and mental health concerns are increasing across campus. To address these concerns, in part, UAB has subscribed to Kognito's At Risk training, an online interactive simulation platform that includes interactive role-play conversations to support student mental health and wellness. This training is designed for faculty, staff and students with learning objectives that include:

  • increase knowledge and awareness of mental health and suicide
  • identify the warning signs of psychological distress
  • build skills to lead conversations with students in distress

Each training module requires between 30 – 45 min to complete; modules are available on-demand 24/7 with unlimited free access for the UAB community.
