Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality (CAMS)
CAMS is an evidence based, suicide-focused treatment framework backed by 30 years of clinical research and 5 randomized controlled trials. To learn more about the training, visit CAMS-Care.com.
The Office of Suicide Prevention has partnered with the CAMS team to offer free trainings to clinicians and other mental health professionals in Colorado, who provide ongoing behavioral health treatment. If you are a behavioral health provider interested in participating, you may sign up to receive information about future training dates on our CAMS Interest List.
Providers who have already been trained in CAMS now have the option of registering on the CAMS Clinician Locator, which will route new clients to your practice, particularly those looking for competent clinicians, trained in evidence-based suicide-specific treatments.
