Skills Building Workshops and Classes The Skill Building program’s objective is to serve persons facing the challenges of mental health illness and/or addictions by creating opportunities for them to recover, tap into their own resources and improve their general life skills. We do so by creating environments that support recovery, self-efficacy, and empowerment, as well as assisting in improving each person’s daily life.
Behavioral Health Services The Life Link offers outpatient treatment programs for chronic and persistent mental health issues, including:
PTSD and trauma
We also offer programs for those who are supporting friends and loved ones with these issues. Our services are conducted within a caring, dignified and positive treatment environment that supports clients in choosing to embrace a healthier lifestyle. Treatment programs are available in English and Spanish and in individual, group or family settings.

Acting on our beliefs, we are a community leader in advocacy for the improvement of supported housing and coordinated behavioral health services for the citizens of New Mexico. Acting in accordance with the guiding principles of New Mexico’s Behavioral Health Purchasing Collaborative, The Life Link is Santa Fe’s largest provider of permanent housing for formerly homeless individuals and families. Currently we provide 93 supportive housing units, in the city, for our clients.
Santa Fe Clubhouse Recovery from mental illness through employment
The Life Link offers outpatient treatment programs for chronic and persistent mental health issues, including: Santa Fe Clubhouse – A Life Link Program.
Who We Are: Santa Fe Clubhouse is a model of psychosocial rehabilitation based on the successful Fountain House Model founded in 1948. There are more than 400 Clubhouses worldwide. Participants are “members”, not patients or clients. Members and staff work together in an atmosphere of mutual caring and respect, while performing the wide variety of tasks necessary to operate the Clubhouse. In doing so, they experience meaningful work, meaningful relationships and meaningful opportunities, while developing the confidence and skills that are essential to returning to paid employment in the community.
Who We Serve: People recovering from serious mental illness.
