The Case of Mario
Mario is brought to a community outpatient mental health clinic due to his parent’s observation that he is “not acting like a normal 13-year-old.” Mario’s parents report that he is failing school, has no friends, and he is often angry at home, “lashing out at this younger brother and sister.” They brought Mario to the clinic because they think he is suffering from the same mental illness because his mother has, and the last straw was that he was found with marijuana in his bedroom. The family reports a long and detailed family history of substance abuse. And, they report that Mario’s mother lives with debilitating symptoms of anxiety and intermittent depressive episodes.

Besides, I prefer hanging out by myself.
