Grand Opening Event Speaker

Joseph A. Farrow is the current president of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), California chapter. Farrow also serves as Chief of Police at UC Davis and was formerly a California Highway Patrol commissioner. Working in law enforcement, Farrow believes that mental health is one of the most critical issues we face in our country. He partnered with NAMI to learn best practices to support those most at-risk and to share these practices with law enforcement personnel throughout California. Farrow is honored to serve as a bridge between law enforcement and mental health professionals.

This satellite campus will be the new home for PAU’s teaching and training clinic, the Gronowski Center, which offers sliding-scale mental health services to the community by PAU students under the supervision of licensed psychologists. Classrooms, faculty offices, and the Student Success team will be located at this site. This Mountain View campus will also be a hub for community workshops and events.
