You Matter Social Care wellbeing event - Menopause

Menopause is a natural part of ageing that usually occurs between 45 and 55 years of age, as a woman's oestrogen levels decline. In the UK, the average age for a woman to reach menopause is 51.

Studies have shown that menopause symptoms can also have a significant impact on attendance and performance at work. Did you know that:

  • Approximately 13 million women in the U.K are either peri- or post-menopausal

  • Symptoms can last up to 15 years

  • Over 60% of women experience symptoms resulting in behaviour changes

  • 1 in 4 women will experience severe debilitating symptoms

  • Almost half of the menopausal women say they feel depressed

  • A third of women say they suffer from anxiety

Esther McNeile Jones, Locality Lead and Clinical Supervisor for You Matter, will lead a wellbeing session for all social care staff, focusing on how to spot signs, manage symptoms and offer advice on how best to cope during this significant change in life.

Why not join the conversation to help reduce the stigma around menopause, learn more about the symptoms, hear from others and share your experiences in an open and safe online space.
