What is CAMS?
CAMS (Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality) is a collaborative assessment and management of suicide. It is a flexible approach that can be used across theoretical orientations and disciplines for a wide range of suicidal clients across all settings. The counsellor, nurse, project worker etc. and client engage in a highly collaborative assessment and suicide-specific treatment plan process. CAMS is designed to form a strong clinical alliance while increasing client motivation. The CAMS is designed to ‘wrap around’ pre-existing mental health interventions and relies on the pre existing skill set of staff to deliver interventions in a suicide specific fashion guided by a suicide specific treatment plan. This training is suitable for e.g. psychologists, counsellors, nurses, mental health professionals, and project staff. CAMS compliments other suicide first aid approaches.

  • Letter of attendance and description of course content will be provided upon request.
  • Cost includes 3 hour online training and 3 group follow up consultation calls with Dr Galavan.
