Volunteering on Sri-Lankan health placement
On January 16th i will be starting my 8 week placement in Sri-lanka. Whilst there i will be living in a homestay with a Host Family and between 6-20 other volunteers. In the week we will work on 5 different projects including mental health projects, youth teachings and working with people with special needs. One day a week we will be working in a psychiatric or community mental health project ( in a Psychiatric Hospital or rehabilitation centre).
Of course the work i will be doing is extremely important and hard work so on the weekends me and fellow volunteers will be off and exploring everything srilanka has to offer! I am so excited (and nervous) to head off to srilanka and to gain some life changing hands on experiance in psychology.
