"My time in Sri Lanka was so eye opening and helped me so much in understanding the cultural differences in approaches to mental health. The session planning at the beginning of each week taught me great organisational skills and how to work well within a team. Conducting the activities every day to different groups of service users really allowed me to gain so much confidence. The placement enhanced my CV greatly and gave me great examples to use in interviews and applications for jobs, helping me secure my placement year within the NHS Forensic Mental Health services. The skills I learned were invaluable and I would recommend SLV.Global to anyone wanting to pursue a career working directly with people, especially in the psychology or mental health field. I am so excited to be an SLV.GLobal Ambassador and share my experiences! I have lots of stories to tell and will answer any questions so feel free to contact me at any point!"
