Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services (ARMHS) is a skill building service for adults (over 18-years old) with mental health diagnosis as well as functional limitations due to the illness. Through the program, mental health practitioners teach, coach, support, and do “along with” the client as they navigate the path of their illness.

Areas of focus may include:

  • Interpersonal communication skills
  • Community resource utilization and integration skills
  • Crisis assistance
  • Relapse prevention skills
  • Health care directives
  • Budgeting and shopping skills
  • Healthy lifestyle skills and practices
  • Cooking and nutrition skills
  • Transportation skills
  • Medication monitoring
  • Mental illness symptom management skills
  • Household management skills
  • Employment related skills
  • Parenting skills

In order to receive ARMHS services, individuals need to have a diagnostic assessment completed by a Mental Health Therapist that indicates it is medically necessary for them to receive the service and explain the functional impairment.

Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services are provided in Winona, Wabasha, Houston, Fillmore and Goodhue Counties.  The service is provided at the client’s home or in the client’s community.


ARMHS Referral Form


A diagnostic assessment (DA) is a written report completed by a mental health professional that determines the client’s mental health.  This assessment is necessary to establish the correct mental health services for the client to live a happy and fulfilling life style.  The diagnostic assessment must include the client’s:

  • Nature, severity and impact of behavioral difficulties
  • Functional impairment
  • Subjective distress
  • Strengths and resources

No, you do not.  However, you need a diagnostic assessment completed by a Mental Health Therapist 180 days before admission into the program.

We are only able to accept Medical Assistance at this time.
