CAMS-Care (Suicide Prevention)
Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality (CAMS)
What is CAMS?
CAMS is an evidence based, suicide-focused treatment framework backed by 30 years of clinical research and 5 randomized controlled trials.
Proven Suicide Treatment Training
Beyond prevention, suicide risk is treatable. The CAMS Framework® focuses on treating “drivers” that make someone want to die – because we believe that everyone deserves a life worth living!
Why CAMS-care is Valuable
The CAMS Framework is built on a foundation of value, with the goal of enabling individual clinicians and entire organizations gain knowledge and experience affordably and quickly.
