Advanced Mental Health in Belize
Submitted by Siobhan McGuire - Indiana University | December 02, 2016
I felt like TEP did an amazing job with the whole program. The lecturers were interesting and informative. I always felt safe and our guides were wonderful. The only criticism I can think of is hardly even a criticism but I'm not sure the accommodations needed to be as luxurious as they were. I don't know how it all works but if I could have saved some money by have slightly less fancy places to stay I definitely would have been happy with that.

Our service-learning trip through TEP was amazing and unparalleled to any other professional experience in which I have been a participant. The organization, professional communication, and cultural immersion experiences I have gained through this program are invaluable additions to my future professional practice as an occupational therapist. Thank you, TEP, for hosting us and providing such unique learning experiences!

TEP did an amazing job preparing us for our trip to Belize, as well as throughout the entire time we were there. They provided us with great tours and lectures pertaining to culture and history. The staff at TEP were very welcoming and open to any questions, which lead to a smooth transition of providing services in another country and culture different from the States. This is a great program and I would go through them again for future service learning trips!!
Indiana University OT - Mental Health in Belize
Submitted by IU OT - Indiana University | December 01, 2016
My experience in Belize providing mental health occupational therapy services was invaluable. The program went above my expectations, was well-organized, and well-done. I was very impressed by Toucan Education Programs in their ability to both provide such impactful opportunities and bring in exceptional speakers. Toucan Education Programs went above and beyond to make our trip meaningful and impressionable on us, as students, but hopefully on those we helped as well.
OT in Belize

TEP was amazing and there is nothing I could say that you could do better. Seriously no complaints. You all were wonderful. My only complaint is Candy Beitman. Her performance was extremely disappointing seeing how she has been coming to Belize for years. She should have understood the need of us in both settings we provided services. She also did not facilitate my learning. Dr. Scott was amazing and I felt as though her groups were very impactful because they were well thought out. As far as TEP goes, I want to thank you all for all your work, because you really made our time in Belize feel like we were safe and at home and I really appreciate that.
