March on Stress has teamed up with the Maritime Piracy Humanitarian Response Programme (MPHRP) in a new partnership to assist with MPHRPs aim of ensuring that mariners who are subjected to traumatic events, especially piracy, get a good standard of care, management and, where necessary, treatment.
Professor Neil Greenberg, of March on Stress, said: “Since its inception, the Maritime Piracy Humanitarian Response Programme has explored various ways of supporting the mental health of seafarers, and their families, who have been through highly challenging experiences. March on Stress is delighted to be partnering with MPHRP in helping them achieve their commendable aims.
“Here at March on Stress, we specialise in supporting organisations and their people who work in high-threat locations, as well as those at risk of occupational stress.
“We are very happy that we are able to share our expertise and work together in the development of this important network to support seafarers and their families in the aftermath of a traumatic incident.”
March on Stress works extensively in the shipping industry, providing psychological monitoring and peer support training to a number of security organisations, and bespoke training packages for Maritime organisations, which aim to improve organisational resilience after traumatic events.
The Maritime Piracy Humanitarian Response Programme was set up to implement a model for assisting seafarers and their families with the humanitarian aspects of a traumatic incident caused by piracy attack, armed robbery or being taken hostage.
