October is World Menopause Month and the theme this year is #PauseToTalk
The theme is around breaking the taboo of menopause, educating ourselves and others, and having open and honest conversations about the menopause. Even if you might never experience it or feel it’s something to tackle later on in life, we all come into contact with individuals who are going through this, at work and at home.
A lot of people going through the menopause really need to be able to talk about their symptoms, be supported and understood.
North Halifax Partnership support their staff and volunteers by:
- Having a menopause support group that meets once a month
- Having a dedicated WhatsApp group set up
- Allowing open access to a library of books and resources
- Having a menopause policy in place
