Mental Health Screening

FDLTCC offers an online Mental Health Screening, for students who may have questions or concerns about whether to seek support for common, treatable mental health issues such as depression, alcohol, eating disorders and more. This online screening is free and confidential. It is offered so that you may find out – in a few minutes – whether or not professional consultation would be helpful to you. Results are not shared with campus professionals. Please visit for more information and to take a free, anonymous screening.

My favorite thing about FDLTCC is the people. I’ve met fantastic students, faculty and staff who go above and beyond what I expected.

I chose FDLTCC because of its size and the curriculum. When I first came here in 2019, I was just looking for what I needed to volunteer, perhaps in a crisis shelter. I met with Don Jarvinen, and the rest is history.

It is awesome here at the FDLTCC Education Program because it is like a family here, if you need help or are struggling with anything, you have quite a few people who will help you out.
