Hi! My name is Adele, and I am a current psychology student at the University of Glasgow. On the 2nd of June of this year, I will be heading out to Sri Lanka to volunteer with SL Volunteers for 5 weeks where I will be teaching young children English, assisting the disabled and working alongside Clinical Psychologists on a mental health placement. This runs in conjunction with the charity, Sumuttàna, at the Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College London - the resource centre for trauma, displacement and mental health. Sri Lanka has one of the highest suicidal rates, but despite this do not have enough psychologists or psychiatrists to tend to their symptoms. During my time away I will work alongside other psychologist to give therapy to the patients of the Acute, Learning disability and Occupational Units of the institution, and provide my assistance within an all women's mental care home. Anyone battling with mental illness, or knows someone who has, will understand the difficult struggle against mental health issues, particularly with lack of support. Thus, your help is greatly needed. To provide my contributions to Sri Lanka with SL Volunteers I need to raise approximately £3000. If you could possibly support my cause - even a few pounds - it would be greatly appreciated. I am happy to answer any further questions if you are interested in aiding me in my fundraising! Best, Adele
