My Travel Story

This trip involves helping people with mental health issues in Sri lanka for 5 weeks. Sri Lanka has a population of over 2 million people, however there are only 50 psychologists there. By doing the mental health placement, I will have to opportunity to help people who otherwise might not get the help they need. 

I have just started my second year in Psychology and I would like to pursue a career in this field. Sri Lanks would be an invaluable experience and would largely increase my employability.

This trip will also be improving my professional development as it will increase my knowledge in a completely different culture, I will be living in a homestay and completely immersing myself in the Sri Lankan culture. This will open my mind to other ways of living and help me build self and global awareness. This opportunity is like none other and I will never have one like this in my life.
