Click here to register

Registration begins at 8:00AM on the day of training.

This date is for the role-play workshop.

The CAMS model is used to assess patients’ suicidality and specifically treat their suicide risk. CAMS is a three-part training that provide psychologists and counselors with knowledge, skills, and practice in recognizing and treating suicidality in patients.

All participants take:

  • A 3-4 hour, self-paced online training. This training features a series of videos which provide an overview of the CAMS model and how to help suicidal patients.
  • An in-person 1 day training. This training is conducted by a trained CAMS consultant who leads group members in using the CAMS model through a series of role-play sessions where participants take turns acting as both counselors and patients.
  • Group consultation follow up calls. These follow-up calls are offered to participants as ways to discuss successes and trouble-shoot the implementation of the CAMS model with patients.

Through the 3-part training, professionals are provided with the needed knowledge, skills, and confidence to help patients who struggle with suicide ideation.

Trainer: TBD

August 28/29, 2019 from 8:30-12:30 PM

This training is for non-clinical staff.

Someone you know could be experiencing a mental illness or crisis. You can help them.

You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, coworker, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to people with the signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self help care.  Anyone can take the 8-hour Mental Health First Aid course — first responders, students, teachers, leaders of faith communities, human resources professionals, and caring citizens. MHFA Woman Image

Sometimes, the best first aid is you.

Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community.
