“I had an incredible and life-changing experience during my placement. I not only expanded my understanding and knowledge about the mental health field, but as well, about myself. I always knew I wanted to have a career in mental health, however, prior to my placement I only had a western perspective, which primarily focuses on chemical-based treatments. By experiencing the global effect of mental health and mental health treatment I realise now that my previous understandings were ignorant. It is my experience that makes me excited for this role, as so many people in my life only have a western perspective. By sharing my stories and the global opportunities possible, I am excited to help expose future professionals to the global impact and treatments regarding mental health.”
