The survey – which can be found at https://redcap.link/mariners and is available until May 31 – asks U.S. mariners about COVID-19, mental health and how they feel being on a vessel amid the pandemic. No identifying information will be collected. Results will be used to create solutions that will improve the mental well-being of mariners.
“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 organization said.
Dr. Marissa Baker, Assistant Professor & Industrial Hygiene Program Director, University of Washington School of Public Health, is conducting the independent survey.
