What is ARMHS?
ARMHS is a mental health service which assists participants in developing the skills necessary to make positive changes in their lives. The State of Minnesota certifies the ARMHS program.
ARMHS uses a combination of individual/in-home services and group sessions to teach management and recovery skills to people experiencing serious forms of mental illness. The program is designed for individuals experiencing significant mental health symptoms. Our services focus on helping consumers live and work in their home communities.
The ARMHS program seeks to improve independent living skills, promote integration into the community, and encourage healthful psychological functioning. We work with consumers in developing a treatment plan that will assist them in developing meaningful and supportive relationships. As well as to enhance skills to live as independently as possible, learn ways to prevent relapse, cope with serious and persistent mental health symptoms, and manage stress.
Who is eligible for ARMHS?
People who have authorization for services from Minnesota Medical Assistance or health coverage by a PMAP. People who have been diagnosed with a serious and persistent mental illness, and these symptoms impact their life.
