So you can do your best
Living is complicated, full of ups and downs. And being a student adds pressure and challenges on top of that. We all need some help sometimes. The Counseling Center is here to support you, as an FLC student.
If you are enrolled in at least 8 credits, your student fees include an intake and four counseling sessions (this is prorated for students enrolled in fewer than 8 credits). Additional sessions are $35 each.

Is this normal?
Anonymous online self-assessment
Do I need counseling? Is this a big deal? Or is this just normal? It can be hard to tell sometimes. Use these anonymous self-assessment tools to get some feedback. Find a quite place. Give yourself ten minutes, and be honest in your responses.
Use the Self Evaluator (green button in the menu at the top of the screen). Answer a few quick questions about depression, anxiety, disordered eating, or substance use.
These self-screening tools are completely anonymous. No one sees them but you. Results are not monitored by any mental health professionals. Call 911 in an emergency or get info about support for crises.
In addition to, or sometimes instead of, counseling, there are things we can do to make living our lives a little easier. Check out some ideas for managing stress, depression, anxiety, homesickness, and more.
We all need a little help sometimes. It can be hard to ask for it, or to know where to go for help. Use these tools to support students (or yourself) in finding peer connections or getting support to navigate life safely.
Sometimes it's hard to know where to look to find people with similar interests. Submit a referral to connect students with resources on campus.
Let Student Affairs know if you are concerned that an FLC student or employee may be a victim of an assault, harassment or discrimination. You may choose to report anonymously.
Report student behavior that you would like to bring to the attention of your department chair or your supervisor. For emergencies please call 911.
