Friday 17th May (12.30-1.30pm) - Dr Laila Kaikavoosi

Fri 17 May - 12.30-1.30pm - Register Today

As we step into Mental Health Awareness Week (13-19 May), it’s an important time to make mental health and wellbeing a priority for us all. (Peri)menopause can be a very difficult period for women and it can have a significant impact on an individual’s mental health.

Women are often aware of the common menopausal symptoms like hot flushes and night sweats, but they may be completely unprepared for the changes to their mental health that can include anxiety, low mood, poor concentration and brain fog.

May’s Menopause Cafe will be hosted by OMC’s Founder and Clinical Lead, Dr Laila Kaikavoosi, who will cover the various aspects of (peri)menopause and mental health, including:

  • Introduction to (peri)menopause and Mental Health
  • What causes mood disorders during menopause
  • Mental Health symptoms
  • Risk factors
  • HRT Treatment and how it can help some women
  • Alternative ways to look after your mental health during menopause
