Kognito: The California Department of Education recently issued their model suicide prevention policy to assist districts in complying with AB2246. Kognito’s evidence-based professional learning simulations have been listed as a recommended resource to satisfy the training portion of the legislation. Simulations include:
- The At-Risk for PK-12 Educators suite of products (for High School, MiddleSchool and Elementary School) is a turnkey solution to educate PK-12 educators and staff about mental health and suicide prevention which supports improved student wellness and school safety. They rapidly build the capacity of educators to lead real-life conversations that change lives.
- Friend2Friend is a game-based simulation for adolescents that builds awareness, knowledge, and skills about mental health while reducing stigma. It prepares youth to recognize signs of distress, reach out to a friend they are concerned about, and help identify a trusted adult for support.
- Step In, Speak Up! is an interactive role-play simulation for educators that builds understanding and appreciation for the challenges faced by LGBTQ youth, and prepares users to lead real-life conversations with students to curtail harassment and support those who may be struggling as a result of bullying or isolation.
Kognito is the only company with health simulations listed in the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP). View a free demo.
