Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services (ARMHS) is a set of services that were
developed to bring restorative, recovery-oriented interventions directly to individuals who have the capacity to benefit from them, whether in their homes or elsewhere in the community.

Services consist of developing, implementing, and monitoring a person-centered, individually designed, proactive plan to address challenging behaviors. A waiver-positive support professional develops this plan to enhance a person’s quality of life through the process of teaching or increasing positive behavior. When possible, the person leads the process to develop a positive behavior support plan and/or positive support transition plan.
