I am volunteering for 2 weeks from July 21st to August 4th in Sri Lanka. I will be working in a mental health facility following and assisting a mental health professional along with working in community projects with children that have mental health disabilities in a government school and/or NGO. A link with the full program details is listed below:
This trip is a chance to work with children from a country that has one of the highest suicide rates, a 40% population rate of mental health disorder, and 3% prevalence of severe mental disorder. It is personally a great opportunity to dive even deeper into a field I have a huge passion for and create positive change for a community frequently overlooked.
II made this page for any family or friends who might want to help out. Anything at all would be great just to alleviate the high cost of airfare and would be immensely appreciated. :)
