Support for those affected by sudden death in young people
When a family loses a child or young adult the effects are devastating for all who knew and loved them.
Our mission is to ensure that all those affected by the sudden and traumatic death of a child or young adult aged 25 or under throughout Wales receive the bereavement support they deserve.
The Trauma Risk Management (TRiM) Programme is a peer support system designed to identify those at risk of developing a psychological illness as a result of a traumatic event.
TRiM Practitioners have undergone training to allow them to understand the effects that traumatic events can have upon people.
They’re not counsellors or therapists but are there to listen, offer practical advice and signpost to specialist support.
TRiM can be used 48-72 hours after a distressing incident, and participation is completely voluntary.
Email Trauma.Incident@wales.nhs.uk or ring 0300 123 9211 for a referral form.
