Seafarer's Mental Health Webinar
On 9th June Alandia's Loss Prevention, together with Sailors' Society and Safe Marine, hosted a webinar regarding seafarers' mental health.
Seafarers are a risk group for mental disorders because of distance from family, long work hours and fatigue. In this webinar, we discuss the most common mental health disorders depression and anxiety – and how to prevent the crew from symptoms. Mental health has a significant impact on the shipping industry. It affects crews’ motivation and performance. Poor mental health increases the risks in vessel operations. Because poor mental health is stigmatized and often a sensitive subject to discuss, it is of high importance that we dare bring the topic to the surface and take preventative actions.
