Mental Health Resources

Kognito Online Interactive Training

In partnership with the Montana University System (MUS), Helena College is developing access to Kognito for mental health, an online evidence-based virtual simulation training module for both faculty/staff and students that teaches how to recognize and respond to someone who may be experiencing distress or suicidal thinking.  It is an interactive web-based module that can be accessed from any device.  Watch for our marketing events here at HC introducing the product and how to use it.

Cellphone App

In partnership with MUS, Helena College offers You at College a personalized digital tool created by behavioral health experts to foster campus wide well-being to help students, faculty and staff thrive.  HC is currently working on implementation – watch for the introduction of this very effective and helpful app.

Referral System

In partnership with MUS, Helena College will be using Thriving Campus, an online directory that allows students to access a list of off-campus, licensed mental health clinicians, many of whom specialize working with students.  The website includes various guides and resources that assist students through the process of securing off-campus outpatient care.  The finalization of this referral system is still in the development stages, but you can review the site at the following link:
