Later this month, ISWAN’s Executive Director Roger Harris will present on the mental health of seafarers at a seminar on ‘The Future of Maritime Professionals’.

Regulations, enforcement of Conventions, technology, connectivity, social isolation and mental health all have an effect on today’s seafarer. The seminar, organised by The Nautical Institute London Branch, will focus on these topics and how they affect the future of maritime professionals.

Ahead of his presentation, Roger Harris said: ‘The mental wellbeing of seafarers is becoming an important issue and it is good to see that The Nautical Institute London Branch are highlighting it at their conference.’

The seminar will be held at the Novotel Hotel Bristol from 20th to 21st April 2018. For more information, visit The Nautical Institute’s website.
