Counselling Supports in NMCI


MTU Cork Student Counselling Service provides an array of supports for the students of NMCI. Student Counsellor Paul McCarthy is on site at NMCI every Wednesday to support the mental heath needs of all NMCI students both ashore and afloat. Paul worked for 26 years in the Irish Naval Service, where he performed a similar role and so is uniquely qualified to understand the stressors of Maritime life.
