Our 2018 Exhibitors
Mental health placements in some of the most beautiful places on the planet.Show content
SLV.Global is a mental health organisation running voluntary placements in Sri Lanka and Bali, Indonesia. Their focus is on global mental health and aim is to benefit communities in need of extra support within the mental health sector at the same time as providing skilled volunteers the chance to gain much-desired psychology work experience in various communities abroad.
On their psychology-focused placements, volunteers work as Activity Support Workers - running therapeutic activity sessions for individuals living with a range of mental health issues and disabilities, as well as teaching English at a variety of settings in the local community.
Volunteers on all of the SLV.Global placements have the opportunity to learn from local professionals to increase their knowledge and enhance their skill sets whilst being immersed in an exciting new culture. They are happy to be different and are dedicated to prioritising the quality of the work they do over a holiday experience. All of their placements are designed to provide maximum benefit to the communities where they work and at the same time give volunteers the opportunity to gain highly valuable experience in the mental health sector. All volunteers are required to undergo a series of in country training sessions run by local professionals and the SLV.Global team.
They are on the lookout for passionate, motivated individuals who have a keen interest and knowledge of psychology and mental health to join their teams, and continue to provide valuable resources to the communities they work with. SLV.Global was founded by a group of Psychology graduates, so they are well aware of the importance of gaining valuable, relevant experience to progress into a career in the field and we have developed the placements with that in mind.
