Adult Mental Health Habilitation Services

Effective November 1, 2014, Indiana implemented the 1915(i) Adult Mental Health Habilitation services program. The AMHH services program was adopted by Indiana to provide community-based opportunities for the care of adults with serious mental illness who may most benefit from keeping or learning skills to maintain a healthy safe lifestyle in the community.

AMHH services are provided for individuals and their families, or groups of adult persons who are living in the community and who need help on a regular basis with serious mental illness or co-occurring mental illness and addiction disorders. This is accomplished by:

  • Assessing the individual’s needs and strengths.
  • Developing an Individualized Integrated Care Plan that outlines objectives of care, including how AMHH services assist in delivering appropriate home and community-based habilitation services to the individual.
  • Assisting the individual in reaching their habilitative goals.

An eligible AMHH services recipient will be authorized to receive specific requested AMHH services as approved by the State Evaluation Team and on their care plan for one year (360 days) from the start date of the approval. The following are the AMHH services:

  • Adult day services
  • Home- and Community-Based Habilitation and Support Services
  • Respite care
  • Therapy and behavioral support services
  • Addiction counseling
  • Supported community engagement services
