Clyde Marine Recruitment thinking of the wellbeing of Seafarers

October signifies World Mental Health Month, a crucial time to draw attention to an often-overlooked concern: the mental wellness of seafarers. The life of a seafarer is uniquely demanding, characterised by extended hours and prolonged separations from loved ones. The isolation and anxiety-inducing environment at sea can exact a heavy toll on an individual’s mental health. At Clyde Marine Recruitment, we recognise the significance of nurturing the overall well-being of seafarers. In line with this commitment, we’ve curated a selection of mobile apps aimed at delivering both physical and mental health support.

We are on the verge of launching an enhanced version of our Ankaa App, featuring these links to self-help services.
