My placement will involve going to Bali for 4 weeks as part of a mental health placement. I will be spending my initial week being trained to work with people with special needs, psychiatric facility training, and attending workshops to learn to effectively teach children and adults English. Following this, I will put my training into practice, splitting my time between special needs work, working within the psychiatric hospital, teaching English for development and working with children for their development. Not only will these experiences benefit my own understanding and experience of mental health, it will also provide a beneficial environment and experience for those targeted. For example, by teaching children and adults English the placement team will be greatly improving their future career opportunities and giving them an invaluable skill. Additionally, we will be giving patients in the psychiatric facility a number of amazing treatment plans, for example crafts and music making. As a volunteer, I will act as a positive role model for the diverse groups we will be working with and will specifically act as an Activity Support Worker. Although this may be an emotionally consuming placement, I can only imagine how rewarding the experience will be and I cannot wait to make a difference to those we will be helping.
