In addition to offering individual, group and relationship counseling, the Counseling and Wellness Center’s staff also provides programs on wellness issues, alcohol, sexual assault, harassment and other mental health issues.
The Wilcox Health Center’s services include primary healthcare such as immunizations, acute illness care, women’s healthcare, diet and nutrition, treatment of minor injuries, public health issues and mental health concerns.
Prevention is a priority at Alma. We recognize that many problems can be minimized or even avoided if information or help is provided before a crisis is reached. Counselors and medical staff are available for presentations or group sessions for residence halls, classes, clubs or community groups.
Because of our affiliation with MidMichigan Medical Center, a 142-bed regional hospital here in Alma, our staff members are able to provide access to other local providers and specialists should referrals be necessary.
