TRiM has received recognition in a new report by the House of Commons Defence Committee (HCDC).
The Defence Committee published its Fourth Report of Session 2014-15 on The Armed Forces Covenant in Action Part 5: Military Casualties, a review of progress (HC 527) on 30 October 2014.
Among its findings and recommendations the report said “We welcome the introduction of the Trauma Risk Management system and the MoD's work in reducing the stigma attached to seeking help for mental health problems.”
It highlights that this reduction in stigma has meant an increase in service personnel seeking support and reports that those seeking support do so earlier, while still in service.
Professor Neil Greenberg, Director of March on Stress and Royal College of Psychiatrists Lead on Military and Veterans Health, said: “I am delighted that the value of TRiM has been recognised by HCDC.
“At March on Stress we have worked with numerous non-military organisations who have found similarly to the MoD – that TRiM works to reduce to the stigma of mental health and encourages personnel to seek help at an earlier stage."
