The Counseling and Wellness Center provides a variety of free and confidential counseling services for our students.
The Counseling and Wellness Center (CWC) offers counseling and psychiatric services that facilitate students’ personal development to participate more successfully in the Alma living and learning community.
Our professional staff is objective and non-judgmental guides to assist students in overcoming both long-standing and immediate problems. We strive to help students develop new skills and perspectives to enrich their lives.
What services do we offer our students?
Our licensed professional counselors provide focused individual, relationship and group counseling. In addition, walk-in emergency services are available daily for students who feel in urgent need of help or crisis intervention. Students may also arrange for psychiatric evaluations and medication management with our psychiatrist.
Therapy Dog Outreach
Over the past few years the Counseling and Wellness Center, along with the Library staff, sponsor monthly visits to campus from a local chapter of certified therapy dogs. Each of the dogs in this group has completed the training and certification process necessary for them to become official therapy dogs. This outreach has been very well received by the students and they look forward to the dogs’ visits each month!
