Kajal Patel IHP 325: Dimensions of Mental Health 5-2 Case Study: Robert Smith Robert Smith is a 40- year old, black man who has been diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Robert has encountered many events that may have been the cause of his diagnosis of post traumatic disorder. He has recently retired for the military, but he refuses to talk about his experience and it could be a major factor of post traumatic disorder. Another factor might be that he had a difficulty upbringing, a difficult childhood. Robert was both physically and verbally abused by his father. He was seven years old when his father committed suicide, which could have initiated his PTSD. His mother was an alcoholic and recently passes away last year from cancer. Robert is divorced and has no children and has no family living nearby. He lives in a small, secluded and a rural town that is 30 miles away from the nearest grocery store.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
