Chaplains Gary, Dileep and I attended a brief introduction on the Sailor's Society 'Wellness at Sea' program presented by their program manager Johan Smith.

It is true that a happy crew makes for a happy ship and is of benefit to the company.The program is seeking to bring about a change in thinking in the shipping industry from seafarers being a means to an end to seafarers being seen and treated as holistic beings.

'Wellness at Sea'  is taught to seafarers to equip them for life at sea recognizing the whole person and so the 5 areas  covered are Social, Emotional,Physical,Intellectual and Spiritual Wellness.

Wellness at Sea is also available as a phone app for seafarers to monitor their own health.
