”Coming from Australia I found it incredibly difficult to get any first-hand psychology work experience. SLV.Global has paved an amazing pathway for me which has led me to: Living in Indonesia for several months, moving to the UK where I worked at a mental health hospital, and now a position in a clinical psychology practice back in Perth.
The projects itself are such an amazing experience! Throughout your time in country you really notice a difference in service users well-being and the positive effects that your hard work leads to. Living with a host family and supporting various communities through different projects and therapy types is an incredibly rewarding and invaluable opportunity.
In saying that I definitely think you get out what you’re willing to put in. If you’re willing to put yourself out there, work hard, be adaptable, and get out of your comfort zone from time to time, then SLV.Global can honestly be life changing. The skills you learn on placements give you so much more insight than any university unit can offer and it’s also a great chance to meet incredible like-minded people, stem life-long friendships, travel some of the most beautiful countries, and create amazing memories. The team all work really hard to make sure that you feel supported and get the most out of your experience.”
