"I have been living in Australia for two years. My studies, Master of Social Work, has not only taught me how to deal with relationships, but more importantly, it has made me more aware of myself and has enabled me to take care of myself, mentally.
I asked myself ‘What kind of person do I want to be?’
I realised that I wanted to be a person who could help make changes for people.
As a young person I dreamt of becoming a film maker. My goal is to combine all my thoughts, knowledge, experiences and dream in order to direct documentaries about the impact of mental health issues on people in China.
I want to change the current terrible view and misunderstandings about mental health issues in my country.
Just a day before my placement started, I fell down some stairs. It was a horrible experience for me - the physical pain, the mental issues caused by the uncertainty of future study plans and the fear of living alone.
I have got strong support from Flinders to help me approach difficulties. In the placement that I’m taking right now, my FELO Rosalind, my onsite educator Anne, my supervisor Jo, my tutor Tony and my councilor Heath all provided me great help when I was going through serious mental health issues. I couldn’t imagine how I could survive from my university life without them.
