After you become CAMS TRAINED, we encourage you to include your contact information in the CAMS-care Clinician Locator. The Clinician Locator routes new clients to your practice, particularly those looking for competent clinicians, trained in evidence-based suicide-specific treatments. This tool will become even more critical as states continue to pass laws requiring mental health professionals to have this type of credential, and an increasing number of people seek out this level of expertise from their mental health providers.
