We believe when providers have the support they need, mental health care gets better for everyone.

At Alma, we’re pioneering a new model for mental health care — one that gives providers the autonomy of a private practice with the support of the Alma platform.


Mental health care is a very intimate and highly personal experience. There's no one-size-fits-all approach to high-quality care. At Alma, our job is to support providers and champion their expertise so they can focus on meeting clients where they are and partnering with them to achieve lasting results.
