A Free Training Package for Seafarers

Seafarers' Mental Health and Wellbeing

Positive Changes for Seafarer Mental Health and Wellbeing

Seafarers face unique working conditions which can put them under a lot of stress, with fewer opportunities for relief than they would be likely to find on land.

Our Seafarers’ Mental Health and Wellbeing package focuses on the positive things seafarers can do to help themselves and their fellow crew members.

What the Training Covers

  • This training package explores what seafarers can do to improve their mental health and wellbeing so that they can deal better with the challenges of life onboard.
  • The training consists of a video (23 minutes) and comes with Facilitator Notes including a sample plan on how to run a training session.
