A 2015 Ely, MN community health assessment identified behavioral health issues (particularly depression, anxiety, & substance abuse) as key health issues; a 2016 provider survey reiterated the high need for services to address behavioral health issues. Northern Lights Clubhouse (a member driven community-based mental health program and the main program of Well Being Development) will collaborate with local healthcare organizations, healthcare networks, and community organizations to develop and implement a community-wide, anti-stigma, education campaign.
