Filling up fast: CAMS trainings!

 

CAMS training series taking place in North Falmouth in September with our BH Provider Coalition members? CAMS is the therapeutic framework I spoke about during the last general membership meeting for suicide-specific assessment and treatment of suicidal risk.

*The CAMS 101 training on September 12th is free (with 6 CEUs) and it’s an overview of clinical suicidology with a discussion around suicide-specific assessments and a look at CAMS specifically. It’ll be great for administrators and supervisors who support clinicians doing suicide-specific work.

*The CAMS for Clinicians training on September 13th is specifically for clinicians to become CAMS-trained. That training offers 6.5 CEUs and is $99 but it is free to anyone who works for one of the 15+ Zero Suicide Learning Collaborative agencies across the Cape and Islands. (I’ll email vouchers to folks after they apply.)

Why we formed

  

The Coalition was formed in 2013 with the goal of addressing the fragmentation and confusion surrounding the behavioral health services available to the Cape & Islands community

Coalition Education, Activities and Events

Monthly Coalition Meetings

At our monthly meetings local agencies and clinicians present the types of services they provide and share information regarding current research. This is also a platform to discuss gaps in care and potential solutions.


Behavioral Health Summit

The Cape Cod and Islands Behavioral Health Summit is our signature event where we bring together healthcare providers of diverse disciplines to gain insight into new research, learn of local evidence based initiatives and to network with a wide range of healthcare providers. This event is held annually in October at the Hyannis Resort and Conference Center.


Mental Health First Aid

The Coalition facilitates Mental Health First Aid Training led by Sergeant Kevin Marshall of the Nantucket Police Department. “Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour course that gives people the skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The evidence behind the program demonstrates that it does build mental health literacy, helping the public identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illness.” (mentalhealthfirstaid.org)


Annual Holiday Meeting

Each December we hold a networking meeting where we work together to prepare stockings for our community’s homeless men and women in our community. We take time out of our busy schedule to enjoy delectable, but light food, pleasant conversation and do good work.
