YOUR Gift Supporting Mental Health Trainings for High School Students

The Riverside Interact Club recently participated in the Kognito Friend2Friend training under the supervision of Debbie Gonterman, Interact Advisor and School Counselor.

Kognito Friend2Friend is an evidence-based game-based simulation for students in grades 9-12 that builds mental health awareness, knowledge, and skills while reducing stigma. Friend2Friend teaches how to respond when a friend needs support, how to have appropriate conversations about mental health, and the importance of connecting their friend with a trusted adult. Students were able to practice responding to a peer within the simulation.
