ISWAN has produced four new infographics, in partnership with The Shipowners' Club, using extracts from its latest self-help guide for seafarers, Psychological Wellbeing at Sea.

 Psychological wellbeing enables us to function well, feel good about ourselves, and feel a sense of purpose and life satisfaction. With restrictions to wellbeing such as spending time away from family and friends, limited shore leave and long working hours, it is important for seafarers to take care of their mental health while working on board. ISWAN's new infographics, sponsored by The Shipowners' Club and overseen by Consultant Clinical Psychologist Dr Pennie Blackburn, describe ways in which seafarers can boost their psychological wellbeing.

 Drawing on guidance in Psychological Wellbeing at Sea, part of ISWAN's Good Mental Health Guides for Seafarers, the infographics identify some of the critical factors which characterise wellbeing and suggest how seafarers can enhance them. These include connecting with others on board, doing more of what makes you happy and how to find support while at sea.

 ISWAN will reach seafarers with these new resources via various methods, including its large Facebook following, its network of members and other stakeholders around the world.
