Too often women stay silent on this topic. Discover expert advice with this free webinar

It can be hard to access reliable information and find answers to questions you may have about experiencing the menopause. Mental health organisation Aware will look at the topic of menopause for the May edition of its monthly webinar series.

Taking place on Wednesday 12 May at 12pm, Let’s Talk About Menopause will feature Aware’s Clinical Director Dr Claire Hayes and Dr Caoimhe Hartley, a GP and menopause specialist.

They will discuss the menopausal transition and how it affects both a woman’s mental and physical health. You will also have the opportunity to submit questions in advance or during the live webinar via an anonymous Q&A box.

“The hormonal changes that occur during perimenopause and menopause can have a huge impact on our physical and emotional wellbeing,” Dr Hartley says.

“It is so important to be well informed about what happens during this time of life, to recognize the symptoms and be aware of what options are available to help. I am passionate about women’s health and believe that informing women about their own physical and mental health, empowers them.”

To book your free place at Let’s Talk About Menopause, register here or via aware.ie. Once registered, you will receive an email with the Zoom link to access the webinar live on the day and an opportunity to submit a question for consideration. If you’re unable to watch the webinar live, you can still register your place and you will receive an email 24 hours after the webinar to watch it back, in your own time.

Dr Hartley recently opened Menopause Health, a dedicated clinic to support women with all aspects of the menopause. Women nationwide can book virtual or in-clinic appointments.

Dr Hartley is an Irish trained GP who has dedicated her career to supporting women with the menopause.  She is the only medical practitioner in Ireland to have been accredited by both the North American Menopause Society and the British Menopause Society and has recently been appointed as a British Menopause Society trainer. The clinic offers holistic advice and treatment to manage the full range of symptoms that are associated with perimenopause and the menopause.
