Why you should read this article: • To increase your understanding of the Trauma Risk Management model of psychological peer support • To appreciate the potential benefits of peer support for staff exposed to challenging events or times • To read about one trust’s response to increased staff support needs during the COVID-19 pandemic One of the many consequences of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is that the psychological well-being of nurses and other healthcare staff has received greater attention. The Supporting Our Staff (SOS) service, set up in 2017 at Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust, provides psychological peer support to staff using the Trauma Risk Management (TRiM) model. TRiM is a psychological risk assessment and peer support model designed to mitigate the risks associated with exposure to traumatic events. It was initially developed and used in the UK armed forces but has started to be used in healthcare organisations. This article describes the development and expansion of the SOS service, the implementation of the TRiM model by the SOS team, and the significant part the service has played in the trust’s response to the increased psychological support needs of its staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.
