"Before flying to a novel country I had no idea what to expect, but quickly realised that living and working in a new culture would be an invaluable experience and learning curve. The SLV.Global Mental Health Placement in Sri Lanka gave me an opportunity to learn more about unique culture differences and its effects on people's mental health and perception of psychological sector. In 5 weeks that I spent in Sri Lanka, I've been able to see how I can apply theoretical knowledge, gain hands-on experience in mental health work and most importantly help people from various backgrounds. Working in settings that varied from psychological institutes to elderly's centers and special needs centers helped me to be more confident in my chosen career path."
