We are committed to improv<strong>in</strong>g<br />

the quality of mental health and<br />

wellbe<strong>in</strong>g provision through action<br />

and support, at all levels, throughout<br />

our organisation and our <strong>in</strong>dustry.

Our purpose<br />

We recognise that as executives we must be lead<strong>in</strong>g advocates for mental health and wellbe<strong>in</strong>g,<br />

both with<strong>in</strong> our organisations and <strong>in</strong> the maritime community.<br />

We aspire to work together and lead with visible action.<br />

It is time for the maritime sector, through our leaders and our colleagues, to speak up and demonstrate compassion<br />

and understand<strong>in</strong>g to those experienc<strong>in</strong>g mental ill health by engag<strong>in</strong>g <strong>in</strong> positive action.<br />

Our responsibility<br />

As leaders we are responsible for creat<strong>in</strong>g awareness that we all have a state of mental health.<br />

For those struggl<strong>in</strong>g with mental wellbe<strong>in</strong>g, this may ultimately result <strong>in</strong> mental ill health.<br />

This is a grow<strong>in</strong>g concern <strong>in</strong> our society and across our <strong>in</strong>dustry.<br />

We all have a state of mental health, and as leaders we have a responsibility to raise awareness of the spectrum from<br />

thriv<strong>in</strong>g to struggl<strong>in</strong>g and potentially <strong>in</strong> mental ill health.<br />

To do this we will empower people to thrive at work and be mentally healthy. This will enable people to have the skills,<br />

knowledge, and education to promote wellbe<strong>in</strong>g, protect good mental health through welfare and the environment<br />

and ensure they have access to support when it is needed, thereby foster<strong>in</strong>g a thriv<strong>in</strong>g culture of care.

Our commitment<br />

We advocate and are committed to mak<strong>in</strong>g a positive difference through action and support,<br />

not just with<strong>in</strong> our organisations but also across the UK maritime sector and the broader<br />

maritime community. We commit:<br />

To establish work<strong>in</strong>g conditions and practices that foster a positive mental health state. We will help anybody<br />

struggl<strong>in</strong>g with their mental health and ensure they feel safe <strong>in</strong> the knowledge they have been heard and not judged.<br />

To dispel the stigma of mental health issues by establish<strong>in</strong>g an open and trust<strong>in</strong>g environment that allows people<br />

to listen and talk. We will provide signposts to help from a range of recognised and trusted sources.<br />

To ensure our workforce have the skills, knowledge, and education to help support <strong>in</strong>dividuals whilst<br />

work<strong>in</strong>g both on land and at sea.
