Students face increasing pressures that may lead to emotional distress. According to the National College Health Assessment Survey 42% of students report distress making it difficult to function. However only 40 % of those students seek help. Student mental health has especially been impacted by current circumstances including the pandemic. University of Akron faculty, staff and students can take some meaningful small steps to help our students. Kognito At- Risk Training is a 45 minute online virtual conversation simulation to help you notice signs of student distress, learn and use techniques to discuss your concerns and when necessary refer students to appropriate resources.
