Mental Health Support Solutions

The pressure on individuals employed in the maritime industry – both ashore and onboard – have always been unique and immense. Long periods away from families and loved ones, a harsh and demanding environment, ever increasing levels of complexity in operations, technology, digitalisation, regulation, compliance and geo-politics – all take their toll. Sometimes a little help and support is needed. That's what Mental Health Support Solutions offers.
