As part of its commitment to promoting health, wellbeing and resilience, the Seacare Authority held a mental health workshop in Fremantle late in 2019.
Recognising that seafarers face a unique set of challenges, our mental health workshop brought together maritime employees, seafarers and industry professionals in an open conversation about working together to increase awareness of and develop mentally healthy workplace.
Our challenge is to keep that conversation going.
