Chelsea - “My 5 week Mental Health placement in Sri Lanka was an amazing yet challenging opportunity that was wholly unique and enlightening! Gaining hands on experience of mental health whilst fully immersing yourself into a different culture expands your knowledge and perspectives in an engaging, rewarding way that would be almost impossible to recreate in any other circumstance. This company gave me the opportunity to learn to become more adaptable working in different environments as well as highlight the importance and passion I had towards psychology and mental health. SLV.Global offers the opportunities work directly with mental health initiatives, teach English and participate in a variety of insightful and beneficial workshops. Teamwork is vital and the people I met on placement are an amazing group of like minded individuals. My homestay family were so welcoming and played a big part in my whole experience! I am eager to share my experience with others and encourage them to join this placement through my role as an SLV.Global Ambassador!”

Sophie - “Being able to spend 5 weeks in Sri Lanka was the most amazing opportunity to gain psychology experience and learn so much in a culture I was completely new to! Whilst it was challenging, it was also an incredibly rewarding experience and gave me the chance to work with a wide range of service users. Whether it was dancing, teaching or playing games, no day was the same, which made the whole experience so valuable. I am very excited to now be an SLV.Global Student Ambassador and I can't wait to help others who also want to get involved with SLV.Global and the work they do!!”
