The SeaFit Programme

SeaFit: ensuring quick access for mental health support and wellbeing for our fishermen and families

About GetSeaFit

GetSeaFit is a service for fishermen and their families. The programme which started in 2018  is a joint initiative from the Seafarers Hospital Society and the Fishermen’s Mission, working in partnership to deliver sustainable improvements to the heath and wellbeing of fishermen and their families around the UK.

With initial funding from Seafarers UK, GetSeaFit  has commissioned Fairwinds to provide free mental health and wellbeing support to the community in Newlyn, with an exciting and additional generous donation being allocated  to Fairwinds  from Carfest Via Dr Matthew Boulter of Alverton Practice in support of the delivery of mental health and wellbeing  services for the fishing community.

It’s run by experienced mental health practitioner Ceri Summers, and is based at Harbourside in Wesley Place, Newlyn.

Ceri works in a practical and constructive way, helping you to take control, set goals and build resilience, in the way that’s right for you. Ceri draws on a range of tested techniques to help you find solutions. If Ceri can’t help, she knows how to get you to someone who can.

“Seafit a brilliant project, a resource for fishermen surely needed. You don’t see many old fishermen, it’s work, retire, then expire, all down to life choices. Work hard, play hard, fun at the time but it doesn’t add up to a long and healthy lifestyle”
