Join us this Friday, June 22, from 9 to 10:30 a.m. in Canyon Commons 101 for this helpful discussion, titled “Soul Care for College Students and the College Mental Health Crisis.” All are welcome.

Adams has a PhD in clinical and family psychology and a master’s degree in theology, both from Fuller Theological Seminary, and holds an MS in marriage and family therapy.
