Mental Health Training

Alandia 1 hour and 4 minutes

Covid-19 has been a major negative stress factor for crew and shipping organisations. The seafarer is one of the most exposed working groups to mental illness, as onboard life can be isolated, have long working hours, unhealthy food habits, give less qualitative sleep and entail stressful situations. Mental health has for a long time been stigmatised and shameful. The truth is that this is as much real as our physical health and actually these two are connected in several ways! It is time to skip the shame and bring mental health to the table.

After the training course, you will have several tools to strengthen your mental health. Remember also that this is not a quick fix. To experience improvements from the course you would have to use the tools continuously.

The course contains seven different lessons. First, an introductory course to introduce the subject of mental health and how we would be able to destigmatize it. This is followed by a mental health section divided into five different elements: Social relations, Emotional well-being, Physical health, Food and nutrition, and Rest and sleep. The last lesson summarises the course and talks about important support structures.

In the course, there are some questions you need to analyse. It is helpful to have a notepad and pen or make notes on your computer/tablet or smartphone. We tend to memorize and add more value to our written answers, rather than just our own thoughts. As an Alandia customer, you can also use the mental health package onboard for a more thorough onboard training. Please contact us for more information.
