This month is Stress Awareness Month which raises awareness of the causes of stress and looks at ways to reduce it. In this blog, I’d like to highlight what DIO is doing to support colleagues through stress and share some of my own tips on how I manage stress.

Winter is upon us, which means a drop in temperatures, shorter days, less sunlight and darker nights. We may sleep for longer, feel sluggish and find the simplest tasks difficult to complete.
We’re also dealing with the continued impact of COVID-19 and the extended lockdown restrictions may have caused additional strain on our mental health. This combined with the change of season can affect our mental health, so it’s important that we make it a priority.
It’s Mental Health Awareness Week and I’d like to highlight some of the work that DIO is doing to support our staff who are continuing to keep Defence working.
