Did you know that according to a research conducted by ITF Seafarers’ Trust & Yale University, 1 out of every 4 seafarers is found to be depressed and around 6 percent of total number of deaths at sea are cases of suicides ?

Reasons could be – homesickness, long and irregular hours of work, mentally draining nature of work, dissent against the management or colleagues on board, etc.

Whatever the reasons maybe, but it’s time to take mental well-being of seafarers seriously!
