Community Partners

Sites in the ERG Network work with many communities — the geographic communities within which our clinical research sites are located and the broader communities of all those dedicated to advancing research. We strive to be active participants, using the power of collective effort to accelerate new therapeutic options for those who need them so desperately.

When enrolling psychiatric clinical research studies, patients are rigorously screened for suicidal thoughts—but then are often simply rejected from the study rather than being offered the help they so desperately need. STARR 911 is designed to change this, bridging the gap between clinical research and suicide prevention. The STARR Coalition partnered with ERG to sponsor an onsite training video for research staff, the first step in a comprehensive training program.
