Sailors’ Society is committed to maintaining and furthering the health and well-being of seafarers.
Beginning with the launch of Wellness at Sea in January 2015, the Society has since provided a number of different health and well-being initiatives, such as a Crisis Response Centre in South Africa, ear and eye testing in India and additional plans to create a psychosocial project in the Philippines.
The latest version of Sailors’ Society’s Wellness at Sea app for seafarers hopes to further combat high rates of cardiovascular conditions and mental health disorders among seafarers.
The enhancements to the free app, sponsored by Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement, now gives users a range of healthy living tips, recipes and exercises to help monitor and maintain their physical and mental health at home, in port and at sea.
