Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services (ARMHS)

Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services (ARMHS) are community-based services available to individuals working towards recovery who need assistance with skills to complete daily tasks due to mental health symptoms. These supports enable clients to retain skills or learn additional ones to live as independently as possible and work towards their recovery vision. 

ARMHS providers work alongside the individuals served to develop a care plan as they strive to retain stability, achieve goals, and avoid a more restrictive service setting like hospitalization.

Some of the supports provided:

  • Learning and practicing communication skills
  • Feeling confident in different social roles and settings
  • Discovering and using community resources
  • Budgeting
  • Developing a healthy lifestyle
  • Gaining cooking skills and preparing a healthy diet
  • Learning to get around in the community
  • Managing mental health symptoms
  • Maintaining a household
  • Finding and retaining employment
  • Planning for employment
  • Assisting the pursuit of education

Clients receive services through face-to-face appointments or in groups offered in community settings. ARMHS is typically a one-time-a-week service.
