Sailors' Society Wellness at Sea - Depression and anxiety in seafarers

Seafarer wellbeing has been a focal topic for Standard Club in recent years, particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic and we are proud to be working in partnership with Sailors’ Society’s Wellness at Sea programme, sharing helpful advice and resources over a period of 27 weeks.

Sailors’ Society has put together a 3-minute video where Captain Dan Thompson speaks of his experience with depression and anxiety at sea. As a fellow seafarer, he understands the pressures of the seas and how it takes a toll on one’s mental health. Following his recovery, he has continued to enjoy a fulfilling seafaring career.

In September 2020 Standard Club held a webinar with Captain Artur Olbromski and Stella Maris where the importance of mental wellbeing was discussed. Tune in to hear more on what life is like during the current pandemic from a seafarer’s perspective.

Standard Club has also put together links and resources that you and your families can reach out to should you need any assistance.

Stay tuned to this space as more resources from both Standard Club and Sailors’ Society will be shared regularly.
