SLV Global: Level one Mental Health Placement
In June I will be doing a 5 week mental health placement in Sri Lanka.
SLV works with those suffering from mental health problems in Bali, India and Sri Lanka and recruits volunteers to work in psychiatric facilities and within the community. During my placement I'll be working with young people with special needs as well as patients throughout different stages of recovery and providing my own techniques and creativity in sessions. I'll also be teaching English to students in schools and adults within the local community with the aim to aid individuals with better career prospects. The main reasons I want to do this placement is to help contribute to underdeveloped mental health resources they have in Sri Lanka, as well as learn all about the different culture in Sri Lanka in my time off at weekends. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and I would  appreciate any donation to help me reach my goal.
