The CAMS model is used to assess patients’ suicidality and specifically treat their suicide risk. CAMS is a three-part training that provide psychologists and counselors with knowledge, skills, and practice in recognizing and treating suicidality in patients.
All participants take:
- 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.
- 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. These follow-up calls are offered to participants as ways to discuss successes and trouble-shoot the implementation of the CAMS model with patients.
Through the 3-part training, professionals are provided with the needed knowledge, skills, and confidence to help patients who struggle with suicide ideation.
