Juneau Youth Services
Juneau Youth Services (JYS) is a comprehensive behavioral health provider for children and youth, and their families. We began operations in 1961 and currently provide a full array of emergency, residential, and community-based programs, including both mental health and chemical dependency services. Our overall admission philosophy at JYS is to provide individualized, wraparound services to children and families that are strengths-based, and provided in the most normative (least restrictive) settings. This translates into providing programs that simulate homelike environments that emphasize the child’s development of positive, nurturing relationships and the skills needed to be successful within the community and in life. A primary goal for all of our programs is to maintain or reunite the child with his or her family, whenever this is in the best interests of the child.
