Psychological First Aid

CST's Psychological Response Team responds to the psychological and emotional needs of the Jewish community after a major incident. The team is also available for deployment beyond the Jewish community, enabling CST to assist wider society in a major incident or crisis. 

The Psychological Response Team includes both CST volunteers, and others from the Jewish community with expertise in these specific skills.

The team is led by professional trauma psychologists and psychotherapists, under the supervision of Dr. Nikki Scheiner. All Psychological First Aiders undergo training from leading professionals.

On behalf of everyone here let me thank all the staff and volunteers who work so hard together with the Police and the wider community to protect the Jewish people and to make this charity as successful as it is today.I believe CST is a model for all our communities in Britain.”
