Mental Health Support Solutions

The pressure on individuals employed in the maritime industry – both ashore and onboard – have always been unique and immense. Long periods away from families and loved ones, a harsh and demanding environment, ever increasing levels of complexity in operations, technology, digitalisation, regulation, compliance and geo-politics – all take their toll. Sometimes a little help and support is needed.

Our Service

With a deep and comprehensive understanding of the maritime industry, Mental Health Support Solutions' qualified team of psychologists are here to professionally support and provide solutions to individuals and companies alike. To be effective, and prevent further possible harm, advice and support must be provided by professional and qualified practitioners. Adopting a proactive, tailored and holistic approach, our professional teams have supported some of the largest international vessel owners, managers and operators worldwide, as well as countless individual crew members and employees. Very few of us will go through life without the need of a helping hand.


Leading the way in mental health support for a resilient maritime industry

MHSS triumphs as the Industry Partner Award winner at Seatrade's Global Awards 2023, acknowledging our outstanding 18-month initiative supporting Ukrainian seafarers.
Led by Alexander Dimitrevich, our team conducted 1,500+ interviews, held 500+ support meetings, and provided crucial insights benefiting the broader maritime community. This award reflects our collective dedication, partnering with industry leaders to establish a culture of care for the wellbeing of all maritime workers, on and offshore.

Mental Health Onboard

The state of the superyacht sector

As part of a unique industry partnership, Mental Health Support Solutions (MHSS) commissioned superyacht recruitment agency, Quay Crew, to carry out a mental health survey with crew via the company’s opted-in candidate database.

Over 1,000 anonymous recipients from more than 50 countries shared their mental health experiences. We hope to use the findings detailed in this report to highlight the most critical concerns among crew and possible causes of poor mental health to encourage the improved provision of support services across the sector.
