Who is this course for

Mental Well-being for Seafarers course is designed for the companies to onboard and introduce to their employees, ashore and/or at sea.

Tailored approach

Tapiit Live will work directly with your company to understand your training requirements and will taylor the course to your needs. We will also work with you to include your company related information, e.g. references, policies, resources.

Training schedule

All courses are delivered on bespoke basis. Training schedule will be agreed with each company and sessions will be live-streamed on the agreed date/time, whether delivered to attendees ashore or directly onboard the vessel.

About the course

There are many situations and events that can affect the mental well-being of crew onboard their vessel. Despite actively trying to maintain a positive mental well-being culture within your organisation, there are many situations where your staff may require further support to cope with stress. A recent example of this is Covid-19, which has caused a large proportion of contracts to be prolonged. This course will provide tools to manage stress, giving employees practical tools to cope and manage stress levels in highly stressful situations and environments.

At Tapiit Live we have our Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Dr Rachel Glynn-Williams, delivering the live course direct to your seafarers and on hand to answer any questions or concerns that may arise.
