Subd. 2. Definitions.
For purposes of this section, the following terms have the
meanings given them.
(a) "Adult rehabilitative mental health services" means mental health services
which are rehabilitative and enable the recipient to develop and enhance psychiatric
stability, social competencies, personal and emotional adjustment,
and community skills, when these abilities are impaired by the symptoms
of mental illness. Adult rehabilitative mental health services are also appropriate when
provided to enable a recipient to retain stability and functioning, if the recipient would
be at risk of significant functional decompensation or more restrictive service settings
without these services.
(1) Adult rehabilitative mental health services instruct, assist, and support the
recipient in areas such as: interpersonal communication skills, community resource
utilization and integration skills, crisis assistance, relapse prevention skills, health care
directives, budgeting and shopping skills, healthy lifestyle skills and practices, cooking
and nutrition skills, transportation skills, medication education and monitoring, mental
illness symptom management skills, household management skills, employment-related
skills, parenting skills,
and transition to community living services.
(2) These services shall be provided to the recipient on a one-to-one basis in the
recipient's home or another community setting or in groups.
(b) "Medication education services" means services provided individually or in
groups which focus on educating the recipient about mental illness and symptoms; the role
and effects of medications in treating symptoms of mental illness; and the side effects of
medications. Medication education is coordinated with medication management services
and does not duplicate it. Medication education services are provided by physicians,
pharmacists, physician's assistants, or registered nurses.
(c) "Transition to community living services" means services which maintain
continuity of contact between the rehabilitation services provider and the recipient and
which facilitate discharge from a hospital, residential treatment program under Minnesota
Rules, chapter 9505, board and lodging facility, or nursing home. Transition to community
living services are not intended to provide other areas of adult rehabilitative mental health
