Your wellbeing at sea

The nature of working at sea means there will be challenging times.

Long periods of time separated from family and friends, extended and irregular work hours and many operational challeanges, such as weather, ship motion, and task demands.

Often these factors can affect your wellbeing and mental health.

There are many ways you can improve your wellbeing while at sea: 

  • get enough sleep
  • keep active
  • eat well and drink sensibly
  • try and stay in touch with friends and family
  • seek help and support.

We now have a direct link to resources and support services available to seafarers on our website.
