The CAMS model is used to assess patients’ suicidality and specifically treat their suicide risk. OSPF’s trainings will focus on treating suicidality in youth and young adults (10-24). CAMS is a three-part training that provide psychologists and counselors with knowledge, skills, and practice in recognizing and treating suicidality in patients.

All training participants engage in:

A 4-6 hour, self-paced online training. This training features a series of videos which provide an overview of the CAMS model and how to help suicidal patients. Completion of online course is required prior to in-person training.

An in-person, 1 day training. This training is conducted by a trained CAMS consultant who leads group members in using the CAMS model through a series of role-play sessions where participants take turns acting as both counselors and patients.

Group consultation follow-up calls on Mondays at 12:00pm for eight weeks following the in-person training. These follow-up calls provide participants with opportunities to discuss successes and trouble-shoot challenges as they implement the CAMS model with patients.
