World Menopause Day is held every year on the 18th of October. The purpose of the day is to raise awareness of the menopause and the support options available for improving health and wellbeing. We encourage professionals and women to participate in this global awareness raising campaign by printing and sharing these materials, organising events to engage their communities, and sharing World Menopause Day social media posts.

The theme for World Menopause Day 2022 is Cognition and Mood.

Ireland


Hi Martin

The Irish Government on Friday 14th October launched a Menopause Awareness Campaign. See the Press Release here.

As a counsellor and psychotherapist, I am liaising with members of my organisation to give interactive workshops to increase awareness of Menopause in the therapeutic space.

The statistics I found and presented at Trinity College Dublin in August to members and organisations in America found that women between 45 and 55 in Ireland, UK and America are at the highest risk of death by suicide. We were not talking about menopause and now we are very apt in this year on Mood and Cognition.

Kind Regards
