Marine Café Blog was the first to openly criticise wellness training for seafarers, especially the proposal to make it mandatory. I have laid down the reasons for my opposition in several articles. Not the least, of course, is that depression in general is a complex health problem. To suggest that it can be fixed with some kind of training is absurd and potentially dangerous.

To underscore Marine Café Blog’s stand on the issue, I have been uploading pictograms (or memes, as they are popularly called) on social media. Here are some examples. Feel free to download the images and share them with your friends (right click to copy and save).
