Chapter 6 notes: social work in mental health David Deerinwater summary: David Deerinwater is a man of Native American descent (Cherokee). He had been living in the streets for 6 months with no possessions or family. He voluntarily admitted himself to the hospital and was diagnosed with schizophrenia. Roberta Sholes BSW was the case manager for David. David just wanted to get out of the hospital and he spent much of his time gazing out at nature from hospital windows and porches. Roberta told David the only way he was going to be discharged was if he would work with her to accomplish goals for him. Eventually David told Roberta about his life, his Cherokee culture and customs, and his story to help her understand his situation.
