Where People are People – Not an Illness
The Life Link is a nonprofit 501(c)(3), and has been in existence for over 25 years.
In the beginning, the intention was simple – get homeless families back on their feet. It took a split-second to recognize that many of these families had substance problems, and then another second to recognize there may be mental health concerns. Those few seconds defined the direction of The Life Link. Our programs primarily focus is on housing, mental health, and substance abuse. We provide help to people that are in need of one service and any combination of the three.
As a New Mexico Licensed Community Mental Health Center, we are interested in people’s behavioral health. We offer up-to-date mental health and substance abuse treatments that have undergone clinical trials.
We are open from 8 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday.
Off-schedule appointments may be available.

We serve adults through individual, group, and intensive outpatient programs.
We accept insurance and use a sliding-fee scale . Please call for details.
Yes, we treat those with severe conditions. However, just like in physical health, it makes sense to address any condition before it becomes severe. We serve people regardless of the severity, and we can do screenings.
Did you know? According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, 8.9 million people have a concurrent mental and substance use disorder. Yet, only 7.4% of individuals receive treatment for both at the same time. 55.8% receive no treatment at all.
Our programs work together and are integrated to follow best-practice.

Singing Under Water
The Lifelink Santa Fe Clubhouse and Wellness Center is proud to share our first book. This is a collaborative effort of our members’ writings including pieces written by staff and two of our volunteers. This collection has taken some time to put together and has been a great learning process for all involved. We are very proud of this book. The cover comes from a member’s
painting, the prose and poetry editor are Clubhouse members, and some of the computer knowledge needed to create the book came from two of our computer experts who are also members of the Clubhouse.
The title of our book is “Singing Under Water” and it is available on amazon.com. Clicking on the image below will take you directly to Amazon. The foreword to the book was written by Santa Fe Poet Laureate 2010-2012, Joan Logghe. The blurb on the back cover was written by Santa Fe Writer and teacher, Miriam Sagan.
“The writings in “Singing Under Water” embody much love and a community that serves one
another, and invites us in to its brave heart. Make eye contact with these writers. You will
surface the wiser, and the more compassionate for it.”
“Singing Under Water” is a remarkable collection of poetry and prose. As varied as its authors,
the pieces give a great deal of insight into the human condition. There is suffering here, but also
beauty, faith, transcendence, skill, and art. If you want to delve into the workings of the heart and
soul, do read this.”

Successful Living Initiative
The Life Link’s Successful Living Initiative (SLI) a SAMHSA funded federal grant is now beginning its fifth and final year. SLI targets chronically homeless individuals and families with serious mental illness and co-occurring substance abuse disorders, providing them with the support and tools they need to more successfully integrate into their communities. Housing, employment, social connections and a more effective management of both mental health and substance abuse issues allow participants in the project to embrace recovery, resiliency and a healthy and fulfilling life. SLI is the most intensive clinical program offered at The Life Link, serving our most vulnerable and challenging population.
