Really hoping BBC’s look at menopause will help highlight subject

BBC Breakfast have kicked off #BBCMenopause this morning, and I’m really hoping that the week will help to highlight the issues that many women face and provide some factual, evidence based information.

As many of you know I have been asking BBC Breakfast to focus on menopause for some time, so I am delighted they will be featuring it all this week with members of my private FB group taking part.

This is a great opportunity to spread the word about the campaign on your own social media channels using the #makemenopausematter and #BBCMenopause  tags.

Please come and follow me on Twitter (@Dianedanz) so that together we really can #makemenopausematter.

Great to see this focus on Menopause this week particularly as it is also Mental health awareness week. For many woman the first symptoms of menopause are not hot flushes but rather psychological symptoms, which many don’t recognise as related to menopause – which can increase anxiety further.
