Yachting can be one of the most demanding industries in terms of mental health and wellbeing.

Working in a highly-volatile pressurised environment where you have to constantly look your best, work incredibly long-hours, fulfil every guest request at all hours of the day, achieve consistent high-levels of performance and all while living at sea in a confined space onboard with people that you may not choose to live with in normal circumstances.

Often you may feel you have to just get on with the job at hand, make the most of it and pretend everything is fine. Positive mental health and wellbeing is key to your own personal success and that of your crew.

- An understanding of what mental health is and how to challenge stigma
