What do I need to start?

In order to begin the ARMHS application process, providers should have a licensed mental health professional (usually an LP, LPCC, LMFT, LICSW) who has completed the pre-req training.

The provider also needs an administrative staff member to complete the administrative ARMHS Information Seminar session.  These sessions must be completed and up-to-date prior to the application being submitted.

 

 

When/Timeline?

Onboarding is generally within 2 days of free initial consultation. Package is complete within 6 months unless delays due to our calendars not lining up or DHS, and lingering legal questions are covered beyond that timeline.
