At-Risk is a web-based gatekeeper training simulation designed to teach faculty, staff, and RAs to effectively identify, approach, and refer students in mental distress.

At-Risk is the only available training product that allows users to learn by engaging in simulated conversations with virtual students who show symptoms of depression, anxiety, paranoia and thoughts of suicide. As a result, users are better able to handle similar situations in real life.
