About Teen and Young Adult Services

Alaska Behavioral Health provides a wide range of services for young people ages 13-24 who are experiencing mental/behavioral health challenges, with or without co-occurring substance use.

Power Center -Youth Outreach and Drop In  – Alaska Behavioral Health operates a peer-driven program which supports homeless and at-risk youth through a drop-in center, street outreach, and educational presentations. 

Alaska Seeds of Change – is a vocational program that engages transition age youth and teaches vocational and independent living skills, with links to clinical services on-site. Youth learn to grow and sell fresh vegetables in an indoor hydroponic greenhouse setting.

Child & Family Clinic (Therapy) – We provide a wide range of therapeutic services to adolescents, with their families when appropriate. We focus on trauma-informed care using evidence-based practices. Therapy may take place at our Child & Family Clinics, at Alaska Seeds of Change or the POWER Center in Anchorage, in school-settings, or via teletherapy. A variety of psychoeducation and skill-building groups are offered on a rotating basis. 

Family Therapy – Parent management training has been shown to help caregivers manage difficult childhood behaviors. Our family therapy programs tailor and incorporate parent management training techniques, psycho-education, family therapy, and skill development to reduce family stress.

Day Treatment Program – Our Day Treatment Programs (also called Partial Hospitalization Program or PHP) serves young people ages 9 – 18 with short-term, intensive therapy and skill building to address significant mental health needs.  Older transition-age youth may attend our Partial Hospitalization Program for Adults.
