Our mission is to provide graduate psychology students the opportunity to serve the mental health needs of the community by providing free psychological services under the supervision of licensed psychologists. By serving the community surrounding Andrews University, we seek to change the world around us by collaboratively improving the lives of those in our community. We affirm our faith in God by applying the knowledge we seek through scholarly endeavors with the compassion and care modeled by Christ.
