"I had an incredible time on my mental health placement in Sri Lanka. This placement enabled me to develop both personally and professionally. I gained an insight into working in mental health facilities and with children and adults with a variety of needs as well as teaching English. I made some amazing friendships and memories from both the projects and weekend travels and am still in contact with my homestay brothers. It is so humbling and rewarding to be part of a team of volunteers who have come together to help make a huge difference to the Sri Lankan community. I am excited to share my experiences and challenges with future volunteers in preparation for their Sri Lankan adventure."
