A recent survey found that 46% of women were not prepared for the Perimenopause, and 34% of women did not understand what the perimenopause was. Half of the population will go through this major natural life change which can last up to 15 years.
This year, we are working with menopause experts Diane Danzebrink and Hazel Hayden, to make an animated film and resources for Perimenopause awareness. The film will feature interviews with women aged between 25 and 75, who share their concerns, experiences and advice about the menopause transition, to inform and prepare women for what is to come and how to cope with it. The film will also give ideas of how to give support to family, friends, colleagues and patients through-out the menopause. , it should be ready to share by August 2023
The film will be a free resource, ready for translation, available for use in education, workplaces, for GP’s and doctors.
