Enhance communication & critical life skills

Kognito experiential learning solutions give your students, faculty, and staff the confidence to start more conversations and take action that cultivates a community of care.


Our evidence-based solutions let learners develop skills in a private and risk-free practice environment, giving them the freedom to explore different conversational tactics and build the confidence to address difficult topics in real-life conversations.

Research Proven

Multiple empirical and longitudinal studies demonstrate that our simulations, which incorporate insights from subject matter experts, result in statistically significant changes in knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behavior.

Measurable impact

Our clients are equipped with admin tools to allow for easy usage tracking to monitor compliance. Customizable pre-/post- surveys support program evaluation and measure changes in self-efficacy and behavior change.

Brief & scalable

Unlike conventional one-day workshops, our virtual simulations have a duration of just 30-75 minutes, and are accessible to students and faculty at anytime from anywhere via desktop or mobile devices.

More students getting help. Sooner.

A peer-reviewed randomized control trial at a large private university found statistically significant changes among Kognito trainees:

of students

who completed Friend2Friend said they would recommend the simulation to their friends

help-seeking rate

The help-seeking rate of Kognito trainees is twice that of untrained students

more self-referrals

Training 14 students in Kognito leads to 1 additional self-referral to support

Bucknell University

Bucknell University leverages Kognito’s At-Risk suite for staff and students to build awareness, knowledge, and skills about mental health and suicide prevention through conversation. In the 2019 school year, new Bucknell students completed the simulation as part of their orientation, along with hundreds of faculty and staff members.

After the training, 96% of campus student leaders reported that they were “very likely,” “likely,” or “somewhat likely” to discuss their concerns with a student exhibiting signs of psychological distress.

University of Iowa

The University of Iowa initially launched Kognito’s At-Risk simulation as a mandated training program for its first-year students. After a widely positive response, they have since rolled it out to the entire student body, and now plan to market the training to the entire campus community to include faculty and staff.
