HOW CAMS-CARE ADDRESSES MONTANA’S MENTAL HEALTH

The CAMS Framework has been proven through multiple randomized clinical trials to be the best assessment, intervention and treatment to reduce suicide ideation. It is recommended by such groups as the Zero Suicide Initiative, the Joint Commission, and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

While it is important that communities learn how to identify the signs of suicide risk, it is crucial to have a network of healthcare providers in place and trained in evidence-base suicide-specific treatment to whom people identified as suicidal may be immediately referred.

CAMS-care offers several training options to meet various learning styles and budgets. The CAMS treatment is available via online training, in-person role-play training, consultation calls, ZOOM training, and more.

Mental health professionals have reported that the CAMS Framework has given them a way to confidently treat suicidal patients effectively in only 6-8 sessions. And, more importantly, patients have reported they like using CAMS.
