Mental health and wellbeing are on the agenda, but what can we do about it?

  • Svendborg Søfartsskole 6A Overgade Svendborg, 5700 Denmark (map)

Mental health and wellbeing at sea will be the topic of this event!
We will look at the problems, discuss recommendations and solutions, we will have case examples and a number of tools will be presented. The range of topics will be broad; loneliness, cooperation ship-shore, bullying, fatigue, internet, etc. We will engage the audience in the discussion with an aim to set a direction and give solutions, which can be implemented relatively easy and used when needed.

Awareness, communication, care and good leadership seem to be key components, but there are also more specific tools.
