Annual Report 2016-17 | Department of Corporate and Information Services 105 OUR PEOPLE Mental Health Week 2016 The first DCIS Mental Health Week was conducted from 10 to 14 October 2016. There were 25 sessions delivered by external service providers, covering 11 topics in five different locations in Darwin, Casuarina, Palmerston and Alice Springs. The feature topic was Mindfulness and Managing Stress, other sessions included Mental Toughness, Increase Your Tolerance, Stress and Resilience, What Makes a Great Relationship, and Fixed versus Growth Mindset. There was a very high level of staff engagement across the department with over 300 staff attending individual sessions. The week featured a daily email about a mental health topic, supported by a dedicated staff site containing additional articles, links to websites and course details. Mental Health Week culminated in Odd Socks Day where staff from across DCIS sent in odd socks photos. There was extremely positive feedback about the week, with staff expressing thankfulness that mental health and how to maintain good mental health, were highlighted. In response to staff commenting this should take place annually, a week focussing on the health and wellbeing of DCIS staff is planned for late 2017.
