Seafarers’ Mental Health and Wellbeing is a free training package produced by KVH Videotel in partnership with ISWAN.
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.
Seafarers’ Mental Health and Wellbeing focuses on the positive things seafarers can do to help themselves and their fellow crew members deal better with the challenges of life on board.
The training package is suitable for individual viewing and can also be used for training sessions onboard and ashore. It comprises a 23-minute video, facilitator notes to assist those who running training sessions on vessels, and our Good Mental Health Guides.
