Cards SPEAK Kognito Online Training Course

What is Kognito online training?

Cards SPEAK (Suicide Prevention, Education, Awareness, and Knowledge) is a SAMSHA grant program awarded to the University of Louisville in 2015. The grant’s purpose is to increase awareness of mental health wellbeing and to develop a comprehensive suicide prevention education program.

Kognito At Risk is the online training option. Kognito uses an interactive and visual format where the user can start a conversation with a virtual student. The user can choose what to say in a typical college situation and gets a response from a virtual student having a conversation about concerns regarding the student. The Kognito simulator allows the user to practice skills in a safe environment. Kognito training equips faculty and staff with the tools necessary to promote mental health and prevent suicide by practicing scenarios online. Users can choose a variety of responses and interact with the student. One of the benefits of Kognito At Risk is that anyone can complete the program 24/7 on their own time and at their own pace.
