Seafarers' Mental Health: Learnings from walking a mile in their shoes
Social isolation, restriction of rights and life-style, confinement, dependability on the internet, not being able to celebrate events with friends and family – we've all been subjected to this for over 40 days now. For a seafarer, this is normal. What have we learned about seafarer mental health while living one-tenth of their lives? What will change?

- Rebecca Hayes Mejia, Public Health Manager, Marine Benefits
- Johan Smith, Wellness at Sea (Sailors' Society)
- Caitlin Vaughan, Project Manager, ISWAN

Best practices for crew managers and the impact of COVID-19 on seafarer rights
In part 1 of this webinar we discussed the impact of COVID-19 on seafarers' rights and examined the exposed vulnerabilities and the measures that should be in place to ensure crews are safe and protected at sea. We also looked at seafarers' rights, visa and travel, anti-corruption practices, and welfare provisions.
In the second part, our speakers, representing some of the largest ship management companies, looked at the pressure points in crew management during the crisis and future risk management frameworks; admin, bureaucracy and cooperation – what worked, what didn't – assessing system reliability.
Speaker line-up included experts from the Institute for Human Rights and Business, Maritime Anti-Corruption Network, Columbia Shipmanagement, MSC Cruises, BSM Singapore, and InterManager.
