Henpicked Menopause Awareness Sessions

A series of free menopause awareness sessions are taking place to coincide with International Women’s Day on Tuesday 8 March 2022. The sessions are being offered in partnership between Henpicked and West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership (our integrated care system, or ICS) and are open to all staff and volunteers working in health and social care.

Sessions are being held for colleagues, for people working in human resources (HR) and occupational health (OH), for line mangers wanting to understand how to support their teams
and for partners, friends and family members of someone going through the menopause.

It is a fantastic opportunity for those who are affected by the menopause, those who aren’t affected and wider health and care professionals to work together to raise awareness and look at ways to support people impacted by this experience.

Further information about the sessions on offer and details of how to book onto these, can be found on the flyer here.
