Crisis Teams Pursue CAMS-Trained Designation

April 22, 2024

Canvas Health‘s mobile crisis teams (Anoka County, East Central Crisis Services, and Scott County) recently came together at our Oakdale clinic for a full-day role play training on the Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality (CAMS).

CAMS is a therapeutic framework for suicide-specific assessment and treatment of a patient’s suicidal risk. It is a flexible approach that can be used across theoretical orientations and disciplines for a wide range of suicidal patients across treatment settings and different treatment modalities.

This training was a part of the crisis staff’s pursuit of earning the designation of “CAMS-Trained.” Training over the next several months will include online learning, book learning, the on-site role play training, and consultation calls with CAMS trainer, Dr. Blaire Ehret, Ph.D.
