In September, the Dena’ina Wellness Center’s Behavioral Health program moved into Chuq’eya Qenq’a, or Birch Tree House.
Chuq’eya Qenq’a is located just across the driveway from the main doors of the Dena’ina Wellness Center. The building previously housed Na’ina Family and Social Services. The building has been remodeled throughout to accommodate Behavioral Health department needs.
The new space has a number of features that will enhance the services that Behavioral Health staff provide. Among them is an expanded playroom area to provide therapy services for children. The building also features larger, more private offices – with large windows – for clinicians working with un’ina.
