A new training package produced by KVH Videotel and ISWAN was introduced yesterday during the 5th Annual International Shipowning & Shipmanagement Summit in London.
The package, ‘Seafarers’ Mental Health and Wellbeing’ will be available free of charge throughout the industry due to the critical importance of the topic. The programme was produced in association with ISWAN and comprises a short video, facilitator notes, and information booklets from ISWAN on mental health issues at sea.
