Psychological Care & Support Groups
Our licensed social workers are available to facilitate brief, oncology-related counseling to patients and their caregivers at no cost to the recipient. For patients seeking longer, ongoing counseling opportunities, our social workers are able to assist with referrals to licensed psychologists. Crisis intervention is also assessed and addressed by our social workers. For further information, call the WMCC Social Work Department at 269-373-7446 or 269-384-8629 or email email@example.com
