Good Mental Health
International Seafarers’ Welfare and Assistance Network

Taking care of our mental health is just as important as looking after our physical health.
There are several factors that can impact seafarers’ mental health, such as job stress, family pressures and limited shore leave. Being away at sea can also make it difficult to access support. However, help is out there! ISWAN have developed a range of self-help resources to help seafarers manage and cope with low mood, stress and fatigue, and maximise their overall psychological wellbeing. Their resources for seafarers include a series of three self-help guides, a range of mental health and wellbeing infographics, and an audio relaxation exercise.
