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. The Northern Lights Clubhouse is the main program of Well Being Development. Well Being Development is also the lead agency of the Ely Behavioral Health Network and the fiscal agent of the Ely Community Wellness Fund.

Our Mission: To promote mental health and well-being in the northeast Iron Range 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
