Seafarer’s Mental Health is of paramount importance. The trainings and workshops about mental health awareness, although extremely important, are inadequate to assist them to identify and formulate interventions to assist a person onboard with mental health problem. That is precisely what CASE Application, developed by ASCOT is about. An android application that can assist the master, or any other officer, to properly and simply evaluate a crew member that presents signs of 10 mental problems derived by the literature and 65.000 assessed seafarers by ASCOT over the years. CASE provides a rudimentary diagnosis, but most importantly First- Aid Interventions that are clear, simple and applicable to maritime, immediately and without the need of an internet connection.
