Self-care: This presentation teaches you to identify signs of burnout and learn ways to cultivate practices that support all dimensions of our life (i.e. academic, personal, and professional) necessary for self-rejuvenation.
Stress management: This presentation helps you learn how to use energy from a stress response to perform and meet your goals, rather than feel anxious.

Be There: This prevention program aims to build connection and increase community support by identifying how to recognize and respond to peers in distress. Campus groups may request this Counseling Center facilitated workshop after participants have completed the Kognito training.
Kognito is an online, interactive training simulation used at more than 350 campuses nationwide. This self-guided training takes about 40-minutes to complete and is designed to help you talk with peers who are exhibiting signs of psychological distress and motivate them to seek appropriate help.
