Weʼve raised £125 to raise mental health awareness in Sri Lanka
- Colombo, Western Province, Sri Lanka
- International volunteering
- Time left
- Funded on Wednesday, 8th February 2017
Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
In July 2017 I will be undergoing a 5 week Mental Health placement through SLV in Sri Lanka. During my time there I will be working in a community mental health setting and running therapeutic activities in the wards with service users each in different stages of their recovery.
In addition to this I will have the opportunity to teach English to young adults and children within the local community as well as working closely with individuals with special needs.
The purpose of this placement is to provide Sri Lanka's population with psychological support as they need it more than current resources can provide. Still recovering from a 25 year old civil war and the 2004 tsunami, Sri Lanka's need for qualified mental health professionals is apparent. With few psychologists in residence and beds in psychiatric hospitals scarce, our goal as volunteers is to help reduce stigma, improve well being and to bolster current resources.
You can help! Any donation, however big or small will be going towards providing care to one more individual as well as funding more volunteers to go out there and make a change.
Thank you for all your support,
