Sometimes a mental health disability goes along with a physical disability and gets in the way of achieving good outcomes in rehabilitation. Often times the challenges presented by the mental health disability will impact the person’s ability to live independently and participate in the community more than the challenges presented by the physical disability.
Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services (ARMHS) is a rehabilitative program for persons who have a mental health diagnosis along with their brain injury or other physical disability and could benefit from services to regain skills related to independent living, involvement in the community or managing their mental health. ARMHS services also can be very helpful in keeping skills that have been regained.
An ARMHS specialist meets clients in their homes and/or other locations to provide skills training and support until all goals are met. The time spent with the specialist varies from client to client, and typically decreases as personal goals are achieved. The types of skills that can be strengthened through ARMHS are:
