Double Major in Psychology

I volunteered with SLV.Global on a mental health placement in Sri Lanka during July 2016. I had such an amazing experience! All the other volunteers were lovely and I made some great friendships, as well as all the coordinators and staff members in Sri Lanka and London. It was a great way to gain practical experience in psychology, and to learn about how mental health is approached in other cultures. I also had the chance to go to Bangalore with SLV.Global and visit NIMHANS, which was an incredible experience! If any future volunteers have the option to go to India as well, I would 100% recommend it! Sri Lanka is a beautiful country, and I'll never forget everything I learnt during my experience there
