"I had the most incredible 14 weeks in Sri Lanka on my placement with SLV.Global. Sri Lanka is a beautiful country with a welcoming and warm culture. I felt right at home with my homestay family, and made life long friends meeting like-minded people from all over the globe. The placement exposed us to learn and experience global mental health, run projects collaboratively to help empower service users psychologically, socially and physically. My experience was enriched by travelling to many different areas around Sri Lanka to experience the culture and tourism. My placement was an incredible opportunity to become apart of a movement in increasing positive mental health and reducing stigma, which I am extremely proud to b apart of. I am so excited to become an SLV.Global Ambassador, because I would like to share my experience with as many people as possible, so more people can have the opportunity to travel abroad and offer their skills and knowledge to improve quality of living and be apart of the positive movement in global mental health!"
