Residential, home-based, & foster home psychiatric services for severely emotionally disturbed children & their families.
AK Child & Family brings hope to troubled young lives through a broad range of mental health services. Our residential psychiatric treatment, community based programs and treatment foster homes offer the structure, care and expertise to help young people facing significant challenges build strong, positive, healthy lives.
A young person coming into our care receives an individualized treatment plan. A treatment team is established. This team includes a variety of people who agree to support the student through their treatment. A parent or family member, guardian, case worker, teacher, clergy or close friend are some example of people who might be on a treatment team. Beyond our professional staff, the decision of who is part of the treatment team is guided largely by the student.
Our staff and Treatment Foster Parents receive extensive training. Our Training Department brings professional development not only to our staff but also to organizations across the state. In addition to on-site training, staff members frequently attend conferences with leading professionals from across the country. This focus on professional development ensures each young person and each family receives the high-quality care they deserve.
