Menopause and mental health

Menopause is when a person’s periods stop due to lower hormone levels. It usually affects people between the ages of 45 and 55, but it can happen earlier. It affects anyone who has periods. 

Menopause can impact your mental health and cause mood swings, brain fog, anxiety, stress or even depression. If you are experiencing menopause and feeling low, stressed, or anxious, you are not alone. 

On this page you can find factsheets, tips and information and organisations about Menopause, the impact it can have on your mental health and ways to improve your wellbeing.
