Kasym is a 19-year-old whose parents came from Guatemala when he was 6 years old. He is struggling in college, and now, he is sleeping 20 hours a day and not attending class. His roommate brought him to the school mental health center and reports that he was trying to hurt himself.
1.     What is the primary concern with Kasym’s cultural background and his clinical symptoms?
2.     Design a plan for Kasym to ensure that he has social and financial resources and a primary care provider and provide the rationale and evidence for effectiveness.
