Mental Health Services

What services are offered?

ARMHS

Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services is a supportive program for eligible adult clients with a mental health diagnosis.

Services are provided in the home and/or community using a collaborative approach  to promote understanding of diagnosis, coping skills, use of community resources and integration, skills, relapse prevention, employment related skills, transition to community living, home and organizational management and self-care.

In-Home Psychotherapy

In-Home Psychotherapy is a service provided to individuals in the comfort of their home by qualified Clinical Trainees. Clinical Trainees are Mental Health Practitioners with a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology who conduct therapy under the license of a Mental Health Professional, and are undergoing individual and group supervision to obtain their own licensure.

We also offer Psychotherapy at our office, located at 2260 Cliff Rd, Eagan MN.

The Certified Peer Specialist

The Certified Peer Specialist, or CPS, is an individual who has a lived experience of mental illness and is trained to provide direct mental health services. Certified peer specialists offer support and hope to individuals who have experienced mental illness by sharing their story and helping them to discover their strengths. Certified peer specialists assist in reducing barriers to community resources, and they provide encouragement for involvement in community activities that support goals and interests.

The Role of the Peer

The role of the Certified Peer Specialist is to use a non-clinical approach that helps recipients discover their strengths and develop their own unique recovery goals. The CPS models wellness, personal responsibility, self-advocacy, and hopefulness through appropriate sharing of his or her story.

Sessions will then commence according to the clients schedule of need and desire, typically one to two times per week, for 1-2 hours per session.

Services will address specific treatment goals set forth by the Client with the support of his/her Practitioner.
