"Volunteering with SLV.Global was one of the best experiences of my life. I learned so much about global mental health, how to effectively fight the stigma surrounding mental health, addictions, and treatment options in developing countries. I was able to work with individuals who are differently abled, shadow a psychiatrist and a social worker on home visits, and teach English to adorable little kids. The best part? I was able to see the impact my hard work, and the work of SLV.Global as a whole, in supporting local initiatives was having on the Sri Lankan community. I wish I had someone in the ambassador role to speak with before I went on my placement so I am stoked to be able to be that person for future volunteers!"
