Counseling , Health and Wellness Center
Wellness services at Alma College are a collaboration between the Counseling and Wellness Center (CWC) and the Wilcox Medical Center. Our goal is to promote the health and well-being of our students through the delivery of programs and services that enable them to accomplish their academic goals and enhance personal development. We believe that wellness should be a conscious choice and is associated with emotional stability, improved personal relationships and good physical health.

Health Center Services
The goal of our Medical Center staff is to provide a variety of health related services to the campus community, in a clinic setting. Our staff welcomes the opportunity to consult with students wishing to take personal responsibility for their own health and wellness or seeking information for classes and presentations.
Our services include primary health care such as immunizations, acute illness care, women's health care, diet and nutrition, treatment of minor injuries, public health issues, and mental health concerns.
Health Services also serves as a resource for health education materials.
Our affiliation with Mid Michigan Regional Medical Center-Gratiot enables our staff to access other local providers and specialists should referrals become necessary.
Prevention is a priority to us. We recognize that many problems might be minimized or even avoided if information or help had been provided before a crisis was reached. Therefore, our medical staff is available for presentations and programs on a variety of issues such as stress reduction, healthy life-choices, lowering risks of problems with alcohol, sexual assault, sexual harassment, and other mental health issues that affect our students.
We are happy to provide programming for residence halls, classes, clubs and organizations, and community groups in order to share a prevention or educational message.
