Nowadays, there is an increasing awareness in the maritime industry regarding mental health and the impact of the challenges that seafarers face. What is more recently, guidelines were issued to shipping companies emphasizing the importance of mental health awareness, encouraging training in recognising signs and managing supportive conversations.

ISWAN's training aims to address mental health at sea, as it adapts best practice for mental health awareness, early recognition and response for a seafaring context. The training is designed by a Consultant Clinical Psychologist and is based in best practices in the field of mental health.

The course will take place on Monday 24 June 2019 at INTERTANKO in London.
