In Mint 17, click on the Mint Menu button, go up to Preferences then click System Settings and look for Screen Locker and click it. Earlier versions (Mint 13) would be Menu, System Tools, System Settings then Brightness/Lock.

KDE System Settings or Configure Desktop should have a Display and Monitor option and there should be a 'Screen Locker' option.
