Access to the Kognito LGBTQ simulations have been temporarily disabled as we work to improve your experience. Information on a more comprehensive Diversity & Inclusion product will be shared at a later time.


This suite of six online, interactive, and research-proven training simulations are designed to educate our faculty, staff, and students about best practices in supporting (1) students who struggle with psychological distress including depression and suicidal ideation, (2) LGBTQ students who are struggling due to harassment or exclusion, and (3) student veterans who are facing challenges in adjusting to college life. Each training takes 30-60 minutes to complete and is structured as a virtual practice environment where users learn by engaging in interactive role-play conversations with emotionally responsive student avatars. The suite is available at no-cost to all California community college faculty, staff, and students.*

Please note: the courses refer to the office where students can seek mental health services as the "Counseling Center." At your school this may be located elsewhere; specific referral information for your college can be found by clicking the "Local Resources" button within the trainings.
