What's on Your Mind? - Mental Health Awareness
Mental wellness, while often overlooked, is an important aspect of the health and wellbeing of the crew aboard a ship. Accidents or incidents resulting from a seafarer's mental breakdown will have significant consequences for the company and ship's crew. In the seagoing community an understanding and engagement in matters of mental health is vital. In addition to the adverse personal health impacts on crews, mental health already costs shipowners financially.
In the guidance document What's on Your Mind, we will review some of the common risk factors of a developing mental health condition and recommend measures to prevent or treat an occurrence onboard.
