About Northwest Passage
Northwest Passage is dedicated to restoring hope through innovative mental health services for children and families.
From its genesis in 1978, Northwest Passage programming has focused on blending traditional mental health treatment with arts and nature based therapy. Though the problems facing children and teens have evolved since 1978, the fundamental needs for self-respect, trust, relationships, and steady guidance remain the same. And while Northwest Passage has grown in size and sophistication, we’ve never lost sight of the foundations all children need to be successful. Above anything else, Northwest Passage’s goal is to restore hope in our clients. By investing in the lives of marginalized youth, we are influencing and changing how mental health is ultimately treated and viewed. The transformations we see are no less than extraordinary.
Hope. Northwest Passage offers hope to those who have been unable to find it elsewhere. When our clients are able to look inward and find a spark of hope, they often find the greatest pieces of inner strength. Our programs are designed to help children and teens who have felt their lives spin out of control. We want to see our clients ...emerge from therapy with a regained sense of balance and self-worth. Our staff works with clients to help them use individual achievement as a springboard to future happiness and success.
