In this podcast, we speak to Matthew Mitchell, the US Coast Guard's Director of Policy, to discuss his experience of mental health and wellbeing challenges both at sea and on shore, as well as the steps SAR organisations can take to ensure their staff and volunteers are protected and have the space they need in high-stress environments.

Matthew Mitchell - SARyouOK? podcast

The podcast touches on sensitive subjects and has been produced as part of our #SARyouOK? Initiative to promote awareness and break down the stigma that is attached to mental health and wellbeing issues for those involved in the maritime SAR sector.
