Well Being Development was founded in 2010 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 provide mental and behavioral health education and resources to the Ely community.

Our Vision: All people living in our community are able to live their best lives.

Our values are integrated in all that we do; respect, compassion, collaboration, community, and impact.

Our three programs include Northern Lights ClubhousePathways to Wellness: a Care Facilitator spoke, and new in 2023 Recovery Residence with co-located services, and host of the Ely Behavioral Health Network.  We also act as the fiscal host of the Pathways to Wellness Fund.
