MTCare Program Considers These Four Steps in Order to Maintain Crew Wellness:
Identifying the needs and interests of the employees, by sending surveys to the crew
regularly, reviewing and reporting the received feedback and making suggestions to the
individuals and the company.
Mtr survey library:
  • Physical wellbeing
  • Mental wellbeing
  • Communication and relationship initiation

Conducting different wellness programs and activities that align with the employees needs and interests.

Offering a psychological assessment tool (Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory MMPI), to recognize the symptoms of different mental health disorders.

Measuring the success of the program by regularly tracking personal survey results, company’s general wellness score and employee feedback..
OMMPI provides useful information to evaluate a person’s psychologicalstate. However, in order to make a full diagnosis, just one assessment tool can not beenough and trusted. Several factors should be considered when making a diagnosis,including a face to face physical andpsychologicalexamination, a comprehensivemedical history, and, if required, lab testing to detect and rule out the participants
with the evidence of substance use and/or other disorders that may generatesymptoms of mental health issues.
