PROMETHEAS

The aim of the PROMETHEAS – Promoting Mental Health at Sea project is to develop a training course and learning resources for seafarers and maritime workers concerning the preservation and improvement of their mental health. Seafarers often work long hours, far from their relatives, isolated in a multicultural, highly hierarchic micro-society. It often generates mental health problems which put lives, vessels, passengers, cargo, the environment and local coastal economies at risk. The project is funded by the Erasmus+ Programme.
