Hello!
I am very excited I've been given the chance to volunteer in Bali for a Mental Health Placement with SLV Global this July 2018!! This is an amazing opportunity to take part in something I am passionate about in one of the most beautiful places in the world!

During this project we will be working in different mental health facilities helping service users with the main goal to promote positive mental health. Activities we will participate in range from teaching English for development, helping with Children's development and Community outreach. This is extremely important in a place like Bali where mental health facilities are limited and there is a lack of understanding of the importance of these facilities for patients.

I am very passionate about this project as it really does make a positive impact on the community and mental health isn't something that should be ignored. I hope to become a Clinical Psychologist in the (hopefully) near future so this opportunity will be amazing for my experience in a mental health setting. It is also very valuable to gain this experience in a different country with a different culture!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this! Any help is greatly appreciated!
