Each year the Range Mental Health Center treats more than 6800 individuals for mental health and chemical use disorders. Our geographic service area spans over 6,000 square miles providing services to all age groups, races, social classes and disabilities. We provide services to children, families, adults, nursing home residents, retirees, and veterans. The center's mission is dedicated to providing comprehensive services to our citizens by helping them reach and maintain dignified lives.
Established in 1961 with a staff of two, the Center now employs over 250 staff. We provide outpatient, inpatient, residential group homes, supportive apartments, school based services, home based and drop-in services. We are located in Virginia, Hibbing, and Ely. Elementary age children in each of the Range schools have access to a Range Mental Health Center counselor. The array of services has been recognized as a model both statewide and nationally.
