I was recently asked to write my definition of mental health. After some thought, I composed the following: “The ability to effectively function, recover, relate and contribute to your family, other close interpersonal relationships, society and work and feel hope and happiness in a productive and healthy manner while obtaining your own life goals.” What caused me to create this definition is that I treat patients in my office who have...

Sundays are the earliest day of the week for Glendale Community College student Sherry Wang. Every week, the 28-year-old psychology student drives from Eagle Rock to an apartment complex in Valencia to run all over town with Jani Schofield, a 7-year-old schizophrenic who requires constant mental and physical stimulation to distract her from sometimes violent delusions and hallucinations. “I can only say she’s one of a kind,” Wang said. “The first time I saw Jani, I felt like she needed friends and needed to feel like she belongs somewhere in this world.

Marshall Allen GLENDALE -- Religion and spirituality have long been neglected areas of the study of human psychology. But the tradition is rapidly changing. "The dichotomy between faith and science was greater before, but people have become more disenchanted with science," said the Rev. Siang-Yang Tan, senior pastor of First Evangelical Church in Glendale and professor at Fuller Theological Seminary's School of Psychology. "Faith isn't against science, but goes beyond science."

Today I am writing to address that fact that in life change is often necessary. I used to balk at change. But with maturity, I realized change often opens another door, and can be an exciting step into the next phase of what God has for us. I have been writing the column ?Family Faith? for more than seven years. Where has the time gone? It started prior to my oldest entering kindergarten at a La Crescenta school ? and now she is entering middle school. The amount of mail I have received on a weekly basis over these years has been staggering, and I cannot thank my readers enough for the support and kind words, and give gratitude to God for those whose lives have been touched.

When Glendale resident Joyce Day dropped out of graduate school, where she was pursuing a degree in psychology, she had no idea that her knowledge of human behavior would help her writing. After she left college, Day got a job working for USC publications. She worked as a proofreader and editor for various publications, including the university catalog and schedule of classes. Her interest in writing and editing grew as she began to write articles and short stories about college life.

What are your resoltions for the new year? Each new year brings a new exhilaration of hope. As another new year approaches, the marker in time triggers us to reflect on last year’s unaccomplished goals. It is a chance to start over again with a new allotment of hope that this year will actually be different. Oddly enough, our resolutions become quite repetitive. After a while, the roller coaster ride of hope and failure can turn into cynicism, and we just stop playing the yearly resolution game.

It’s time again for the eternal optimists in our midst to prepare their New Year’s resolutions, most of which will be relegated to the “best intentions” scrap heap within a month. One reason our resolve is so short-lived is the absence of supportive resources necessary when attempting meaningful changes in our behavior and life goals. And we will soon have one less source of help as the Only Helpful Books store on Foothill Boulevard in La Crescenta closes, a casualty of the Great Recession, the Internet and the Kindle.

Here?s a math conundrum that only a grammar person can explain: If one person has one grammar question, how many grammar questions do 100 people have? Mathematically speaking, it would make sense to guess 100. Statistically speaking, it would make sense to guess somewhere between one and 100. But only in the grammar world does one times 100 equal zero. Allow me to explain. On Nov. 6 I had the honor of serving as a guest speaker at the Sacramento conference of the California Assn.
