CAMS IS Adaptable to TraditionS AND Culture in Approaches to Treatment
CAMS has been successfully trained within sovereign nations with providers working with Native American tribes and nations in Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Arizona.
CAMS is first and foremost a philosophy of care. The CAMS clinician endeavors to understand their patient’s suffering from an empathic, non-judgmental, and intra-subjective perspective. The CAMS therapeutic framework readily accommodates traditional medicine, ritual, and culturally-sensitive interventions to treat patient-defined suicidal drivers.
Our team works closely with sovereign nation and tribe behavioral health organizations when delivering a CAMS training to ensure that training addresses the unique factors of the community being served and provides a model that is effective in increasing the skills and confidence of providers in treating suicidal risk.

CAMS-care is designed to support providers who work with suicidal patients and does not provide direct clinical services. If you are located in the UK and need crisis assistance, contact your local NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMHS) Services as we are unable to assist you.
