During flu season, Facilities disinfects and sanitizes common surfaces, like doorknobs and handles. Hand sanitizer stations are located in many public areas and hallways for your use.

Online Mental Health Screenings

The Counseling Center has partnered with Screening for Mental Health Inc. (SMH) to allow North Lake students and employees to take a free, anonymous Online Mental Health Screening for symptoms of concern such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and more. The screenings are meant to help you decide if consulting with a mental health professional would be helpful to you. The results of the screenings are not formal diagnoses and not intended to replace professional discussions with a counselor.
