Study: 1 in 8 Active Commercial Pilots May Suffer from Depression
The anonymous survey included nearly 1,850 pilots from more than 50 countries. The authors of the study suggest that depressed pilots are not seeking for a treatment of their depression because of the fear being grounded or damaging their careers.
Joseph Allen, a public health researcher at Harvard University in Boston and senior author of the study, says: “With roughly 140,000 active pilots flying more than 3 billion people worldwide each year, the survey results should put the airline industry on notice that many pilots need better access to mental health screening and treatment.”
