January 2022 OMC Menopause Cafe – Mental Health
January 2022’s OMC Menopause Cafe was hosted by Dr Shashi Prasad who covered many aspects of menopause and mental health, including:
- What causes mood disorders during menopause
- Mental Health symptoms
- Risk factors

- Other ways to look after your mental health during menopause
Menopause and perimenopause can have a significant impact on a woman’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 in their mood and emotions.
From anxiety and low mood to poor concentration and brain fog, it is often these aspects of our health that can have a significant impact our quality of life, including our relationships with friends, family and colleagues at work.
