The Mission to Seafarers is committed to listening to seafarers and to their families.
That’s why we launched WeCare, a wellbeing programme providing bespoke mental health and wellbeing course to crews and their families worldwide.
WeCare Training Programmes:
- Social Communication – Exploring links between social media, long-distance relations and our mental health and wellbeing. This course enables seafarers and their families to understand how social media and long distance relationships affect their mental health. It promotes coping strategies to apply on both sides of a relationship to champion positive mental health and wellbeing.
- Financial Wellbeing – Exploring links between money, relationships and our mental health and wellbeing. This course empowers seafarers and their families to manage their mental health through applying financial coping strategies such as budgeting, saving and risk assessments.
Our WeCare programme is kindly sponsored by the UK P&I Club and is available free of charge to its members during 2019 and 2020 as part of its 150th Anniversary. In 2019 alone WeCare and the Social Communication course reached over 6,000 seafarers and their families, receiving an overall 95% approval rating. WeCare is also available to non-UK P&I Club members for a modest charge.
Continuity of SeaCare aims to:
- improve crew mental health and wellbeing
- help seafarers and their families with any problems and concerns – such as financial, health and relationship issues.
This is an independent and confidential service, which is available to companies who wish for a bespoke service for their seafarers and families.
If you are interested in learning more about these services, please get in touch and we will prepare a specific proposal to meet your needs.
We know that the mental and physical welfare of seafarers and their families is of paramount importance. There is a range of ways your company can get involved.
