June 25 will as always mark the annual Day of the Seafarer. In 2017 and 2018 we have seen a strong momentum in the industry to address seafarers wellbeing, particularly their mental health.
At Seagull we have had this as a focus inside our Seagull Bulletin and therefore we are now opening all locked articles to this subject to share with you information and tips of how to improve your own wellbeing.

If you sign up an account on our website you will always be able to access the Bulletins, and we are constantly working on publishing more content regarding health and wellbeing of seafarers.
As we say, the Seagull Bulletin are for Seafarers by Seafarers!
DotS was established in a resolution adopted by the 2010 Diplomatic Conference in Manila to adopt the revised STCW Convention. Its stated purpose is to recognize the unique contribution made by seafarers from all over the world to international seaborne trade, the world economy and civil society as a whole.
The resolution "encourages Governments, shipping organizations, companies, shipowners and all other parties concerned to duly and appropriately promote the Day of the Seafarer and take action to celebrate it meaningfully".
Day of the Seafarer is recognized by the United Nations as an observance day.
