Managing Suicide Risk Collaboratively: The CAMS Framework

Handling a Suicide Crisis—CAMS Setback Session

CAMS care with Kevin and Dr. Jobes is proceeding weekly along a 12-week course of care in this case study. Kevin was steadily improving through week 7. Then in week 8 his suicidality re-emerges when Kevin finds himself in a place and time that draws him to consider making a suicide attempt that could be lethal. Yet he is here, at his CAMS care session with you and Dr. Jobes . So he obviously didn’t die. What happened to place Kevin’s life at such high risk? You’ll learn this, and also what kept him living instead of ending his life. Was it something that he’s internalized from CAMS care thus far?
