Karl Shallowhorn is the Education Program Coordinator at the Community Health Center of Buffalo

As a high school student, Karl Shallowhorn had big dreams, however they were all shattered by a disabling bipolar episode at the age of 18 while he was a freshman in college. After struggling for years, Karl was able to overcome this challenge by utilizing a variety of tools that have enabled him to become a leading mental health advocate on both a local and national level. Karl will be sharing both his experience of living with a co-occurring mental health and addiction disorder as well as practical tips on staying emotionally healthy during one’s college years.

9/26/2018 – Peter Granger
Topic: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and College Students

Peter Granger is a retired Army officer

Hi, my name is Pete and I’m here to have a discussion with you about post-traumatic stress disorder and college students.

Let me start out by saying I am not a psychiatrist, a psychologist, or a licensed mental health provider. Heck, I’ve never even done extensive research into PTSD. I am up here to promote a discussion with all of you because I am a former college student who completed two degrees while living with PTSD. I haven’t studied the subject of PTSD and college students. I’ve lived it.
