SEAS THE MIND - Mental Health First Aid Training

At SEAS THE MIND we are the only Mental Health First Aid training provider that is taught to crew BY crew.

We train seafarers to become Mental Health First Aiders, MHFA is an educational course that teaches people how to identify, understand and help a person who may be developing a mental health issue. In the same way, as we learn physical first aid, for STCW95, Mental Health First Aid teaches you how to recognise those crucial warning signs of mental ill-health. which we feel is as important as STCW certifications.

MHFA is a practical resource for crew to tackle, recognise and fortify their own and others’ mental health on board.  MHFA is an opportunity to reduce depression and anxiety risks in seafarers, which may also reduce risks of injury and illness, and drastically improve crew retention. It is also a globally recognised mechanism that can be carried over into shore life as a relevant qualification
