Mariners are being asked to complete survey on the impacts of COVID-19 to their mental health
The U.S. Committee on the Marine Transportation System (CMTS) COVID-19 Working Group is encouraging mariners from all segments of the U.S. maritime industry to take ten minutes to anonymously complete the “Mariner Mental Health Needs during Covid-19” online survey at https://redcap.link/mariners.
The confidential survey asks mariners a variety of questions about COVID-19, mental health, and their experiences and feelings when aboard a vessel during the challenges of this worldwide pandemic. No mariner identification data will be collected.
Survey participation from a significant portion of the mariners in each industry segment is critical to understanding how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected their mental health. The survey is available from January 22 through May 31, 2021. The information will also be posted on the CMTS website at http://www.CMTS.gov.
