Hello! In September 2017 I will be boarding a plane to Sri Lanka to undertake a 4 week voluntary mental health placement with SLV -  a UK based organisation that provides students and graduates with hands on work experience abroad within the mental health sector.
My time in Sri Lanka will be spent working one day a week in a community mental health setting, running theraputic activities in the wards whilst the remainder of my week will spent teaching English to young adults and children within the local communities and working with inidviduals with special needs.

I am so excited but am very aware it's going to be a challenging experience.

A couple of pounds can buy me some food whilst i'm away -  I will be extremely grateful for any donations.

Thank you :)
