Resources

Here you will find a wide range of free materials that we’ve developed to help with anything that may be bothering you, and to give you tips and ideas on how to prevent problems cropping up in the first place. In the short videos below, fishers and marine farmers talk about challenges they have faced, and what you can do to keep healthy. They aim to provide reassurance that if you do find yourself struggling, you’re not alone and there is light at the end of the tunnel. We’ll keep adding to this library of resources over time, so it’s worth checking in every now and then to see what’s new. If you need any further help please send us an email using the form below or call us on: 0800 ADRIFT (0800 237 438).

We have recently added three new videos to a series of free wellbeing resources called ‘Staying Ship Shape’. The new videos in the series each cover a key issue in the industry: Leadership at Sea, Conflict and Anger Management and Drugs & Alcohol, and provide practical advice and tips from experienced fishers. Check them out here.
