FLCC premiers seven-part video series on mental health  

Finger Lakes Community College debuted a video series on mental health this week, with a focus on youth.

“Straight Talk on Mental Health” is a series of seven 30-minute episodes that touch on several aspects of mental health, including counseling, mental health first aid, trauma and resilience. 

The show features students from FLCC and Hobart and William Smith Colleges interacting with mental health professionals, leaders from K-12 schools and staff from the Partnership for Ontario County. 

“My hope for this series is to eliminate the stigma around mental health and raise awareness of the wide variety of training, services, and supports available for young people in our region,” said Joseph Fantigrossi, founder and former coordinator of Seneca County Community Schools and current regional community schools’ coordinator for Monroe 2-Orleans Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES). 

The episodes will run on Finger Lakes Television, the public broadcasting network based at FLCC. Finger Lakes TV is available four ways: Roku, a web stream at, spectrum cable channel 1304 in the Finger Lakes region and the cablecast app for Apple and Android.  

“Straight Talk on Mental Health” will run daily at 7 a.m. and 2 p.m. with two additional spots at 9 p.m. on Mondays and Fridays. Each episode runs for two weeks.  

After release, they will also be available on demand on the station’s website at and the Finger Lakes Community College YouTube channel.
