FAIRBANKS — Alaska’s high school teachers, administrators, and staff now have a new prevention tool to address the state’s high rate of youth suicide, available at no cost to them.

Kognito At-Risk is a nationally recognized Web-based program that uses virtual role-playing to train personnel on how to appropriately identify and engage with students at risk for suicide.

Access to the evidence-based program is a joint project of the Statewide Suicide Prevention Council, the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development, and the Alaska Association of Student Governments. It was funded by a legislative appropriation.

More information about the Alaska High School Kognito At-Risk Project is available online at https://highschool.kognito.com/alaska or by contacting project coordinator Tom Chard at thomas.chard@alaska.gov or Sharon Fishel, school mental health, counseling and suicide prevention coordinator, at sharon.fishel@alaska.gov.
