Supporting Our Community

Often, we may feel unsure how best to support students in distress or those experiencing a mental health crisis. The below resources are intended to help each of us build a community of care by identifying, responding to, and linking students in distress to available resources. Please also consult with CAPS, as needed, to support our students.

Kognito is a digital suite of online simulations designed to build confidence in students, faculty and staff when faced with students in distress. Key simulations include Alcohol & Other Drugs Education, Sexual Misconduct Prevention, and At-Risk Mental Health for Students. Students can log onto PirateNet and click the Blackboard chicklet/app to access Kognito simulations. Faculty and staff can log onto PirateNet and click the Kognito chicklet/app to access the simulations. 

Togetherall is an anonymous, online, mental health support community.

Students who are interested in engaging with peers to remove stigma surrounding mental health can join the SHU chapter of the national organization Active Minds. Active Minds at Seton Hall University was established for the expressed purpose of increasing the awareness of the students, faculty, and staff at SHU about issues surrounding mental health, symptoms related to mental health disorders, and mental health resources available both on campus and in the surrounding community. Active Minds works to remove the stigma surrounding mental health disorders so that students will feel more comfortable openly discussing mental-health related issues and seeking help when it is needed. To get involved, students can email and connect with Active Minds on Engage.
