    Story

    Hi everyone!

    As some of you know on 16th January I'll be travelling to Sri Lanka to begin a voluntary 12-week mental health placement.

    The placement is run by a UK-based not-for-profit SLV, in partnership with Samutthana, the King's College London resource centre for trauma, displacement and mental health in Sri Lanka. Their aim is to provide additional support and training to communities with limited resources and an increasing demand for mental health services, while recovering from a 25-year civil war and the 2004 tsunami.

    During the 12 weeks I’ll be working Monday to Friday on projects including:
    • Assisting in local mental health facilities, such as psychiatric hospitals, rehabilitation clinics and community outreach programs.
    • Facilitating programs in schools, residential centres and drop-in centres to support children and adults who have physical disabilities, learning difficulties or challenging behaviour.
    • Teaching English to local children, teenagers and adults.
    • Psychology focused workshops and field trips.

    This placement is an invaluable opportunity for me to use my knowledge and experience in mental health to give back to those who need help. It will also allow me to gain some experience of global mental health by working in a Sri Lankan context, helping to develop my career in clinical psychology.

    The money raised will not cover flights or any travel expenses during the placement. Your donations will contribute towards funding the projects, training, and reimbursing homestays for accommodation and meals.

    I’d appreciate any donations no matter how small. Any other support such as contacts and resources you might be able to recommend would also be amazing.

    I look forward to keeping you all updated on my journey!

    Thanks

    Sasha x
