MCPON Talks Stress

Recently MCPON (Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy), Rick West released a video on his YouTube channel highlighting the importance of operational stress control.

Stress affects all of us.  The MCPON talks about the signs of too much stress and what to do when you notice those signs in yourself or in your shipmates.  He emphasizes the importance of helping each other and challenges each of us to help, “knock down the barriers that discourage our people [from] seeking help early.”

We encourage you take a moment to watch the video and talk about it with your shipmates.
