Question about becoming a seaman?

Hello all, I’ve wanted to be a seaman for a while now because I’ve always loved being on the water. I recently looked into getting a TWIC card and trying to become a merchant seaman and joining up with a union or something but I read on the website you can’t get a card if you’ve been involuntarily committed to a mental hospital and I have before due to reasons related to having Bipolar Disorder. I was curious as to if there are other ways to get a deckhand job or some sort of job working aboard ships? Sorry if this is an unwanted question but I didn’t know where else to post this.
