Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services (ARMHS)
Our Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services Mental Health Practitioners can provide remote and face-to-face services. Face-to-face services can be provided in the person's home, job site, or in the community. Mental Health Practitioners will work with the person served in the following areas:
Diagnostic Assessment: A Diagnostic Assessment (DA) is an assessment that is necessary to determine an individual’s eligibility for mental health services. The DA is a report that documents the clinical and functional face-to-face evaluation of a person’s mental health. This assessment is the only ARMHS service that must be completed by a Mental Health Professional.
Functional Assessment: A Functional Assessment (FA) is a type of assessment that both assesses and describes how a person’s mental health symptoms impact with their day-to-day levels of functioning in key areas. An individual must have impairments in at least three areas, including mental health, to be eligible for ARMHS. A level of care assessment is completed in conjunction with the FA, which determines the level of care a person should receive within the community.
Individual Treatment Plan: An individual treatment plan (ITP) is a written plan that documents the treatment strategy, the schedule for accomplishing the goals and objectives, and the responsible party for each treatment component.
Basic Living and Social Skills: Basic living and social skills are activities that instruct, assist and support the person served in skill areas essential for every day, independent living.
Community Intervention: Community intervention is a service of strategies provided on behalf of the person served to do the following:
Alleviate or reduce a member’s barriers to community integration or independent living
Minimize the risk of hospitalization or placement in a more restrictive living arrangement
To be eligible for ARMHS, a person must:
Be 18 years old or older
Have a primary diagnosis of a serious mental illness as determined by a Diagnostic Assessment
Have a completed level of care assessment justifying the need for ARMHS
Have a significant impairment in functioning in three or more areas of the Functional Assessment domains specified in statute
