CAMS Suicide Prevention Training Framework &
The Zero Suicide Initiative
CAMS has been integrated into many Zero Suicide initiatives in the United States and abroad (e.g., Australia). As a charter member of the Action Alliance Clinical Care Task Force, Dr. Jobes helped to shape Zero Suicide as policy initiative from its beginning and he continues to serve as a charter Zero Suicide faculty member. Due to its flexibility, CAMS can be readily adapted into a range of healthcare settings to meet the Zero Suicide sub-goal of treating suicide directly.
Many organizations across the United States implementing Zero Suicide have completed CAMS training. In this video below, Dr. Jobes provides an informative update on the use of CAMS in Zero Suicide initiatives.
For more information on how we can work with you to meet your Zero Suicide goals, please contact us.
“The Vermont Suicide Prevention Center has been working with CAMS-care to identify a training approach that meets the needs of clinicians in Vermont through online training and consult calls. We chose CAMS-care as the preferred tool for Zero Suicide implementation in Vermont because it is both assessment and treatment and provides high-quality training and support. CAMS-care has been very responsive to feedback and this has increased overall satisfaction with the training approach.”JoEllen Tarallo, ED.D, MCHES
