DescriptionNorth Star is Alaska’s premier behavioral health provider that
specialized in helping young people with life’s challenges. We
recognize that childhood should be a time of joy, fulfillment,
growth, and nurturing care. We also recognize that situations happen
that are beyond young people’s control or ability to
effectively handle. Our programs at North Star work with the family
and the community to help facilitate optimal growth and nurturing
throughout times of childhood adversity. Our goal is to help young
people get on a track that leads to a life of youthfulness –
the life that child and adolescents deserve.
