Tell us about your SLV.Global experience: "This opportunity helped open my eyes and mind more than I thought possibly and I am truly grateful for the experience.”

Tell us what you gained from your SLV.Global Placement: "My biggest takeaway, other than a group of new life-long friends, was perspective. I got to see mental health from a completely new angle and that alone was an immensely valuable lesson. We discussed PTSD from an Eastern perspective, for example, and I began to consider how mental health conditions would look or feel from the perspective of people who have had vastly different experiences from myself or the general American population. This knowledge is something I've taken with me and adapted into other parts of my life. The ability to truly be open to seeing things the way that others may and keeping an open mind has been invaluable in my current role as an investigator."
