Chris Ross Provides Mental Health Rehabilitation in Bemidji Area

LCA News and Information

Chris Ross recently joined the Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services (ARMHS) team in Bemidji.  He has spent the last 25 years supporting people in the Bemidji area.  Chris received a Bachelor of Arts degree from St. Cloud State University in Psychology. He has spent most of his career working with children, teens and families in a wide variety of multi-cultural settings, on mental health and behavioral issues.

Chris Ross believes in building strong relationships with his clients and community organizations to provide the best possible outcomes for success with the people he supports. He looks forward to having an opportunity to work with you or your loved ones.

ARMHS is a program that provides mental health rehabilitation to people with mental health diagnoses including anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, depression, major depression, schizophrenia, borderline personality disorder, and other serious mental illnesses.  ARMHS Practitioners meet with people in their homes and communities and teach skills for managing the symptoms and challenges of mental illness.  ARMHS services through Lake Country Associates do not require a diagnosis of Serious and Persistent Mental Illness (SPMI), but functional impairments the person is experiencing must be directly related to their mental health.
