Service Description

The Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services (ARMHS) service is for people who are living with mental illness and are eligible for Medical Assistance. The service promotes and supports recovery and mental wellness. Service areas include:

People need Basic Living and Social Skills in order to be independent
- This component teaches many of these skills and supports individuals as they practice them. Examples include:
    * Communicating opinions, thoughts and feelings, or key information with others
    * Feeling confident in different social roles and settings
    * Communicating about, or when in a stressful situation
    * Discovering and using community resources to get needs met
    * Getting outside help to deal with a difficult situation
    * Preventing relapse
    * Budgeting and shopping
    * Developing a healthy lifestyle
    * Learning to cook and eat a healthy diet
    * Learning to get around the community
    * Monitoring use and effectiveness of medications
    * Managing the symptoms of mental illness
    * Managing a household
    * Finding and retaining a job
    * Planning for employment
    * Pursuing education
    * Re-entering community living after treatment
Most of these skills are developed one-on-one, but some are taught in a group setting, provided that group learning is a benefit for each person in the group, and is specified in her or his treatment plan.

Community intervention
- Community intervention means a plan of action to make it easier to become part of the community, living independently, or knowing how to live safely when symptoms of the mental illness have become unmanageable. These action plans minimize the risk of a loss of community living which could result in the loss of a job, eviction, hospitalization, etc.

Transition to community living
- Transition to community living services are provided to a person who will be leaving a sub-acute level of care service, such as Assertive Community Treatment (ACT), a skilled nursing facility, an Intensive Residential Treatment Services (IRTS) program, or an acute care service such as a regional treatment center, or an inpatient hospital setting.

Certified Peer Specialist Services
- Certified Peer Specialist Services (CPSS) are specific rehabilitative services that emphasize learning, developing, and enhancing skills needed by a person with a mental illness. These services are self-directed and person - centered with a focus on recovery.

Service Coordination
- ARMHS services can be the only mental health services that a person may require, or as a compliment to other services a person may have.
