Guest Speaker: Dr. Kitty Harris

Many of us know people or are personally continuing to experience mental health challenges. With Dr. Harris, we will delve into the importance and impact of social connections.

People are feeling disconnected and it’s affecting our health. Purposeful service benefits both those receiving and giving help. How do we care for ourselves? How do we care for each other? Why does it matter? 

About Dr Harris:

She is a noted author and public speaker, and presents at national conferences, workshops and seminars on topics including adolescence; collegiate addiction and recovery; and communication, civility and leadership.
