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.
With a deep and comprehensive understanding of the maritime industry, Mental Health Support Solutions' qualified team of psychologists are here to professionally support and provide solutions to individuals and companies alike. To be effective, and prevent further possible harm, advice and support must be provided by professional and qualified practitioners. Adopting a proactive, tailored and holistic approach, our professional teams have supported some of the largest international vessel owners, managers and operators worldwide, as well as countless individual crew members and employees. Very few of us will go through life without the need of a helping hand.
Mental Health Onboard
The state of the Superyacht Sector
As part of a unique industry partnership, Mental Health Support Solutions (MHSS) commissioned superyacht recruitment agency, Quay Crew, to carry out a mental health survey with crew via the company’s opted-in candidate database.
Over 1,000 anonymous recipients from more than 50 countries shared their mental health experiences. We hope to use the findings detailed in this report to highlight the most critical concerns among crew and possible causes of poor mental health to encourage the improved provision of support services across the sector.
