Therapeutic Treatment Grounded in Tradition & Innovation

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.

“Under the Surface reveals the ascendance, worth, and virtue inside each of us and every body of water. We just need to get in and find it.”

Wallace J. Nichols

Famed water activist, author, and biologist, Blue Mind

“These kids see the world and our waters in ways many of us fail to appreciate. It has been an honor to facilitate their wonder.”

Dr. Toben Lafrancois

Research diver, ecologist, and adjunct professor, Northland College
