We imagine you may have some questions about our India program. Whether you're on the team already or considering joining us at a later date, we hope we can answer the majority of your questions here and give you a flavour of what it's like to work with us in India.
+ Do I need experience to join the India program?
Because we don't work with service users on this program everyone is welcome to join us irrespective of experience! You'll need a keen interest in global mental health, but that's all.
+ What's an average day like on the India program?
On this educational program no two days are ever the same! You'll be attending exciting lectures by specialists in psychiatry, psychology and neuroscience at the state-of-the-art NIMHANS facility as well as delving into Eastern practices like yoga and meditation.
+ Can I just take part in the first week of the program?
Yes you can! Of course we'd love you to join us for both parts of the program, but if your time is limited feel free to join us for just the first seven days.
+ What should participants wear during the SLV.Global India program?
Please dress smartly and wear long trousers and collared shirts for the beginning part of the placement and for all your activities at NIMHANS. Once you start immersing yourself in the ancient practices of yoga and meditation you'll need loose-fitting, comfortable clothing you can stretch out in.
+ What support does SLV.Global provide in India?
We're with you and on call 24/7 during the week and are always around if you have questions or need a bit of extra support during the course of the week.
+ Do I need shots/jabs to go to India?
We're not medical professionals, so we're not able to advise you, but please check with your doctor for the best advice and check this website for more information.
+ Can I fundraise to pay the fees for the India program?
Absolutely! Most of our team make the most of the support their universities offer. From grants to bursaries, it's always worth investigating any options that might be available to you. If you've already finished university we recommed setting up a fundraising page.
