Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services (ARMHS) is a rehabilitative program for people who have a mental health diagnosis along with a brain injury or other physical disability. People learn how to manage and cope with their mental health symptoms, while also regaining skills related to independent living and becoming more involved in the community. Each person receives customized services that are appropriate for them and their goals.

 

An ARMHS specialist meets a person in their home or other location to provide skills training and support until all goals are met. The time spent with the specialist varies from person to person, and typically decreases as personal goals are achieved. The types of skills that can be strengthened through ARMHS are:

 

  • Managing symptoms related to mental health
  • Education about mental health symptoms and available treatments
  • Accessing needed mental health services and community resources
  • Improving communication and interpersonal skills
  • Developing healthy lifestyle skills and practices
  • Learning household management skills
