With worrying data on the significantly increased risk of suicide, it is becoming increasingly essential that health care systems systematically integrate the assessment and treatment of people with suicide with quality evidence-based interventions such as CAMS. Increasing the number of trained and certified clinicians and counselors will provide much needed support, especially in these uncertain times of economic and social upheaval with evidence of anxiety, depression, stress, addiction and severe suicidal thoughts.
