Seatrain is honoured to be supporting the 2021 Sailors’ Society’s Wellness at Sea Awareness Campaign. This important, 27-week campaign aims to make a real difference in the lives of seafarers, their families and shore staff and is set to play an important part in an industry-wide conversation about wellbeing and mental health.
The campaign aims to:
• empower seafarers by explaining basic principles of wellbeing,
exploring some of the most common challenges
seafarers face and giving seafarers the tools to navigate these
in a positive way.
• support seafarers, because we know that life at sea can get
tough, and having someone to turn to for support can make
all the difference. There is a wealth of resources out there
that seafarers can turn to in difficult times – for example Sailors’
Society’s helplines and chaplaincy service, which offer free
support and advice to seafarers.
• support and build the seafarer community, because no seafarer is
an island. Seafarers are connected to other people who influence
them in their work and personal life. Seafarers depend on them and
they depend on our seafarers. For us, supporting and investing in the seafarer family and the shore staff taking care of seafarers is important,
because we are confident that it can give seafarers peace of mind
while being at sea.
