Well Being Development was founded in 2011 due to the rising and widely unmet mental health needs in the 12,000 person Northeast Iron Range area of Minnesota.  We are a community nonprofit striving to better meet the range of behavioral health needs of our community by complementing available counseling, therapy, and medical services.

Our Mission: To promote mental health and well-being by inspiring, cultivating, and delivering collaborative, community-driven services, supports, and educational initiatives.

Our Vision: All people achieve their potential and are respected as friends, family members, neighbors, and coworkers

Our three programs include Northern Lights Clubhouse,  acting as a Care Facilitator spoke of the Pathways to Wellness program, and the Ely Behavioral Health Network.  We also act as the fiscal host of the Pathways to Wellness Fund.
