Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services (ARMHS) is a mental health service which assists participants in developing the skills necessary to make positive changes in their lives. The ARMHS program is certified by the State of Minnesota. ARMHS Services are provided in Chisago County only at this time.

The goal of ARMHS is to enable individuals to develop and enhance psychiatric stability, social competencies, personal and emotional adjustment, independent living and community skills when these abilities are impaired by the symptoms of mental illness. 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.

ARMHS Practitioners assist and support individuals in areas such as the following:

  • Interpersonal Communication
  • Community Resource Utilization
  • Mental Illness Symptom Management
  • Relapse Prevention
  • Medical Education/Management
  • Transition to Community Living Services
  • Budgeting, Shopping, & Nutrition Skills Training
  • Household Management

The ARMHS 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.

ARMHS Practitioners work with individuals in developing a treatment plan that will assist them in developing meaningful and supportive relationships, enhance skills to live as independently as possible. Individuals learn ways to prevent relapse, cope with mental health symptoms, and manage stress.

To be eligible, individuals must be 18 or older, diagnosed with a severe mental illness and suffer from functional impairments, and have insurance coverage or Medical Assistance, or other plans with ARMHS services coverage.
