March on Stress Assesses MPHRP's care

March on Stress

March on Stress


Professor Neil Greenberg of March on Stress at the Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London, visited the Philippines to assess the competencies of mental healthcare providers who assist MPHRP in supporting seafarers and families after piracy.

The visit also provided an opportunity for Professor Greenberg to meet with the MPHRP regional team based in Manila to share knowledge and experience.

Professor Greenberg met with five organisations. The interviews were aimed to ask questions about the various standards that are required to run a mental healthcare / psychotherapy service in the UK according to a Core Standards document which has been developed by the Royal College of Psychiatrists. Greenberg has made valuable comments to the MPHRP that will enhance the professionalism and the quality of care provided to seafarers by the MPHRP in the Philippines.

In addition, the MPHRP now better understands the stress experienced by its own personnel in caring for seafarers and families, and will take steps to keep them healthy. Professor Greenberg will address the MPHRP’s personnel when the team gathers in London during September.
