Following the successful addition of Mental Health Support Solutions (MHSS) under the OCS consortium, OCS is delighted to also be incorporating MMS to strengthen its position in the cruise, yacht, river, merchant and offshore markets and bringing medical support services in-house.

The partnership will boost OCS’ services that already include psychological assessments and consulting, a 24/7 mental health line and mental health trainings. In addition, through its partnership with MHSS, it is currently trialling a new initiative offering mental health support to passengers in the cruise sector.

Considering the vast experience of the MMS team in the maritime industry, we are looking forward to working with them and offering seafarers and passengers across the whole industry the full plethora of medical, mental health and wellbeing support services”.
