About this cause

About our cause

On the 18th of June 2018 I will be flying out to Sri Lanka for 5 weeks to volunteer on a Mental Health Placement with SLV Global. The main focus of the placement is to help community initiatives to reduce stigma on global mental health and to improve current resources. Sri Lanka has one of the highest rates of depression, suicide and substance abuse in the world, with self-harm being is 4th top cause of death. With the country having few psychologists in residence it means that the primary method of treatment for those with mental health issues is pharmacological. Beds in psychiatric hospitals are scarce and although the community often provides some aid for the families in need, the lack of qualified mental health professionals is clear. During the placement I will volunteer in a number of projects, which will include working in psychiatric facilities, teaching english and helping individuals with additional needs. SLVs team works with local professionals to provide much needed stimulation and human contact to improve the wellbeing and self-esteem of those in need.
