Menopause & Me
Support for those with lived experience
If you have lived experience and would like support, you can sign up to the free Menopause & Me community course. The course offers six sessions (face-to-face or online spaces available – face-to-face locations will vary), and is aimed at anyone experiencing the perimenopause or menopause.
Each session is designed to address and focus on different areas of information and support, to help people better understand their symptoms, and how to support themselves.
This course was one of a kind. There are lots of courses out there on the menopause that focus on the physical elements, and it was so good to attend one that was about menopause and mental health.
Support for employers
If you work for a small or medium enterprise (SME) in Suffolk – ie a company with less than 250 employees – you may be eligible for our free Menopause Employers Course. This one-day session will focus on raising awareness of the (peri)menopause, and how the affects and associated symptoms can be supported and managed within the workplace.
If your organisation is outside of Suffolk or has more than 250 employees, this course can be purchased separately. Please contact our team to discuss.
One-to-one employment support
If you are experiencing the menopause or perimenopause, Suffolk Mind can offer you a dedicated support worker through our Suffolk Work Well service.
This support is designed to help people who have left the workplace and would like help getting back into employment and those who are employed but would like some additional support.
