"Volunteering with SLV.Global in Bali was one of the best things I have ever done. From working in psychiatric hospitals, people with schizophrenia, children with hearing impairments, etc. I was exposed to such diverse service users, each with very different needs. I have gained such valuable life skills on placement such as the ability to lead an activity with any age of service users with complete nonverbal communication, the ability to engage service users of all ages and ability levels in various activities, and so much more. Volunteering with SLV.Global is just that – a global experience. I found myself surrounded by people from all over the world including North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. I have not only learned more than one could ever hope about the topic of mental health through hands-on work, but I have also learned the value of volunteering abroad and living immersed in another culture. I am beyond excited to become an SLV.Global Ambassador and reach out to others at my University and recruit other psychology students to become part of the SLV.Global volunteer team!"
