Mental Health Worker in Sri Lanka
During my time in Sri Lanka, I will be working with individuals who suffer from a variety of mental health issues. I will help provide stimulation and basic social interaction by running activities and groups using creative therapies, via music, art and sport, to those who have become very isolated and institutionalised on the wards, in multiple mental institutions.
In addition to these groups, I will also be teaching English to those individuals with special needs, helping the less fortunate gain vocational courses.
I will be living in a Sri Lankan family home with other volunteers, to gain a raw experience of what it is like to live in their country. I am hoping to create a blog when I arrive back in the UK so everyone who donates can see exactly what I got up to and achieved in my time abroad.
Thank you in advance for you support and donations.
