May is Mental Health Month and the Citrus College Psychology of Religion class is joining forces with Mental Health America to make people more aware of those who suffer with mental illness.  “Mental Health America believes, along with so many faith communities, that a mind, body, and spirit connection for well being and good health is inseparable,” said Dr. James Skalicky, Citrus College instructor and event organizer.  “It seems to me that healthy religion and good psychology are both focused on improving the human spirit.”

 Skalicky’s Psychology of Religion class is believed to be the only one of its kind on a community college campus.  This year, it is celebrating its 10th anniversary at Citrus College.



Reporters and photographers who are interested in attending this event should call the Citrus College Office of External Relations at (626) 857-4082 to confirm.
