Taking care of crew wellbeing isn't just the right thing to do, it makes good business sense. A happy and healthy crew will be more productive, more engaged and better at their jobs.

As a leader on board or ashore, it can be difficult to know how to support the wellbeing of crew. Here you can find details of ISWAN's Maritime Mental Health Awareness training course, resources to improve crew wellbeing and materials to help raise awareness of Yacht Crew Help.
