Emergency Response Initiative Consortium (ERIC)

ERIC is a partnership of voluntary sector agencies coming together to provide guidance and a face to face first responder service to Jewish schools after a student suicide or sudden traumatic death. The consortium is coordinated by Jami (we also brought the consortium together) and is comprised of Norwood, CST, JBCS, Grief Encounter and in partnership with PaJeS.

We have published a resource: Coping After Suicide or Sudden Traumatic Death: A Guide for Schools. To obtain a copy please register your interest by emailing [email protected]

We have a programme of online briefing sessions that accompany the guide to help schools put in place best practice. All sessions will be 4:30 – 5:30pm on Zoom:

  • Thursday 24th September 2020
  • Wednesday 30th September 2020
  • Tuesday 13th October 2020
  • Wednesday 4th November 2020
  • Thursday 14th January 2021
  • Thursday 13th May 2021

Sessions will also explore how current changes in school life due to COVID-19 may affect students’ mental health.
