Thank you for taking the time to participate in the Mariner Mental Health Needs during COVID-19 Survey. Your voice is very important to helping improve mental health access and outcomes for your fellow mariners, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Purpose: Your input is critical to understanding how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected mariners, particularly the mental health of mariners.

Process: In this 10-minute survey you will be asked a variety of questions about COVID-19, mental health, and your experiences and feelings when you are on a vessel.

  • The electronic survey will take about 10 minutes to complete.
  • The survey is anonymous, and all results will be kept confidential at the University of Washington.
  • You don't have to answer any questions you don't want to

Payoff: Results from this survey will be used by federal agencies, vessel owners/operators, mariner unions, maritime training institutions, seafarer welfare organizations and MTS stakeholders to develop effective solutions that benefit our mariners' mental health.

Questions: This survey is being conducted by Dr. Marissa Baker, Assistant Professor & Industrial Hygiene Program Director, University of Washington School of Public Health. You can email her with any questions, comments or concerns:

This survey is supported by Centers for Disease Prevention & Control (CDC) and the COVID-19 Working Group (C-19 WG) of the federal interagency U.S. Committee on the Marine Transportation System (CMTS).

The Ship Operations Cooperative Program (SOCP), whose members include vessel owners/operators, mariner unions, maritime academies, maritime training institutions, classification societies, other maritime industry stakeholders and government agencies, is actively supporting this project.
