What you'll study

Comprehensive Assessment of At Risk Mental States Clinician and Supervisor training (CAARMS) is considered to be a useful tool to help clinicians identify those who are at risk and those who have experienced a first episode of psychosis (FEP). There is a high demand within Early Intervention for Psychosis (EIP) services for this training and the course will be aimed at increasing the number of individuals who are upskilled in being able to deliver the assessment within early intervention services.

The University of Hull has been commissioned by Health Education England to deliver the CAARMS training in 2022/23. 6 cohorts will be delivered between May 2022 and March 2023. It is anticipated that this provision will support services in need of access to CAARMS training and will compliment the areas of good practice in services where robust CAARMS training is in place.

CAARMS Practitioner Training

Duration: 2 days

Recruitment: Recruitment for the course will be aimed at clinicians working in an early intervention psychosis service or demonstrably similar services providing assessment of early intervention for ARMS. An ARMS service maybe a stand-alone service or part of the EIP provision.

If you are interested in this training then you need to discuss this with your service manager who will be working with HEE and The University to allocate places on the training.

CAARMS Supervisor Training

Duration: 1 day

Recruitment: Recruitment for the course will be aimed at clinicians working in an early intervention psychosis service or demonstrably similar services providing assessment of early intervention for ARMS. An ARMS service maybe a stand-alone service or part of the EIP provision. It is anticipated that the majority of those who complete the 2 day course will also complete the supervisor training. For clinicians who have a good amount of experience of delivering the CAARMS tool it is possible to complete the supervisor training day without having to complete the 2 day course.

If you are interested in this training then you need to discuss this with your service manager who will be working with HEE and The University to allocate places on the training.
