POSITIVE EFFECT continued its quest to bring mental health and wellbeing solutions to private sector workers by extending its reach across the world in an online forum for seafarers.
Danielle Grant, our Health and Wellbeing Training Officer worked with The Mission to Seafarers to deliver its WeCare training.
Ian Cuthbert, our Business Development Manager, said: “We have been exploring opportunities to work together for a little while now, culminating in Danielle delivering the first remote WeCare training session to seafarers based in the Philippines and India.
“We offered our expertise to support another charity deliver mental health and wellbeing training to seafarers where the work can be very demanding both physically and emotionally.”
“A quality trainer”
Thomas O’Hare, Programme Manager at MtS, said the WeCare programme explored practical methods to achieve wellbeing and focusses on prevention.
“Working with Compass-UK enabled the Mission to Seafarers to provide a quality curriculum through delivering it via a quality trainer. Danielle picked up the curriculum quickly, and together we brought the course to life.
“Danielle had a positive effect on the international audience attending, taking her time to explain key tools and utilising online features like annotations to overcome language barriers.
“Working with Compass-UK and its trainers felt like a seamless process that brought experience and knowledge to an already strong WeCare curriculum.
Danielle said: “It was a pleasure to be given the opportunity to work with Tom at Mission to Seafarers.”
