About this cause

About our cause

The placement offers the wide variety of working with mental health and learning disabilities service users across an acute ward, care home, special needs school, and community youth team. I will be engaging individuals in therapeutic and educational activities that I will plan as part of a team to aid the recovery and personal development of service users. I will attend two workshops and one field trip led by mental health professionals on the topics of global and Sri Lankan mental health and therapeutic interventions, with optional evening classes too. I believe this placement will help me deliver holistic care in the future, by deepening my understanding of psychological interventions and providing opportunity to think and act creatively in engaging patients with complex needs, even where there is a language barrier. It will also help me understand comorbidity between mental health and learning disabilities, and understand how the trauma of civil war and tsunami may impact mental health. I will be given the chance to witness how mental health is treated differently in the Sri Lankan culture, and shadow different professionals such as Psychologists, Counsellors and Psychiatrists.
