The purpose of ARMHS is to help the client learn to use mental health, health care and community resources to better manage symptoms, meet their independent living needs, and achieve a higher quality of life. Where clients need them, ARMHS practitioners do not provide direct care services (such as housekeeping, personal care or transportation) directly to clients. Rather, they connect the client with community and health care resources and teach them how to use these services and advocate for their needs.
ARMHS services are supervised by qualified mental health professionals and coordinated with other mental health, health care, residential, vocational and community services.
