I was a coordinator in Sri Lanka for 10 weeks this past summer. The experience I gained was absolutely phenomenal. Since my freshman year of university I started saving up money because I knew that I wanted to work abroad. When I started looking into programs in Mental Health a year ago, most opportunities that I found were advocacy internships and not the hands on clinical experience that I was seeking. All of the programs that I found through my school in California and online were extremely unaffordable. When I happened upon SLV, I was so thrilled to see this program was not only affordable but it was all-inclusive giving me a chance to gain experience in teaching children and youths, work with those with special needs, and run therapeutic activities within a psychiatric hospital. Having been there for 10 weeks, I can attest to how well rounded this program is and the unforgettable memories that I have formed. The projects challenged me and gave me great insight to not only mental health in the cultural context of Sri Lanka, but also about myself. Leaving after 10 weeks, I am now absolutely certain that I want to work within the field of mental health for the rest of my life. This program made me more motivated to pursue my passion within the field of mental health. The past 10 weeks were a life changing experience that I will never forget. I absolutely recommend this program to anyone looking for more experience teaching, working with special needs, and in mental health.
