“My experience in Sri Lanka is truly an unforgettable experience. Living in a homestay with the loveliest Sri Lankan family was truly a highlight and really gave me a taste of what living like an authentic local is like. From those crazy weekends hiking and experiencing the most beautiful scenery Sri Lanka has to offer to having the opportunity to work as mental health activity support workers was definitely life changing, and I have learn so much about my self and the mental health service in other parts of the world. As a psychology student you will always have a deeper understanding of why mental health support is crucial, but it really clicks for you even more once you see how much services are underfunded in other parts of the world and I am really glad i did it with SLV.Global. Prior to this placement I did not have any experience working with individuals with mental health and special needs. SLV.Global have been so supportive in providing training and project support packs so you know what to expect. The projects are the best possible hands on experience for any psychology student and I was able to achieve a lot more than I thought was capable. I am really happy continue on with SLV.Global as an Ambassador and I would most definitely recommend this to anyone who would like to gain fulfilling psychology based work experience.”
