Mariner Mental Health: From Awareness to Action

The latest installment of AWO’s monthly webinar series, Mariner Mental Health: From Awareness to Action, focused on actions AWO members can take to improve safety and the mental health and well-being of mariners. The panel, featuring Dr. Adrienne Buggs of the U.S. Coast Guard’s Mariner Credentialing Program Policy Division, Kelly Clapp of Ingram Barge Company and Douglas Stevenson of The Seamen’s Church Institute, suggested practical steps companies can take to improve mariner mental health, including building social cohesion within vessel crews, developing a suicide prevention program and providing support to mariners who disclose mental health conditions.
