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 Clubhouse, Pathways 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.
