Let’s talk even more about the Menopause with Thames Valley Police and Sunderland University
These days more women are working longer, therefore it’s not surprising that more organisations are taking women’s health seriously and talking about the menopause. Laughology is seeing an increase in enquires about menopause awareness sessions because while we take menopause seriously we deliver our awareness sessions in an engaging and fun way. Making them accessible to men and women of all ages and opening up positive dialogues that continue after the sessions.
September saw another police force (Thames Valley) approach Laughology to deliver menopause awareness sessions. Kerry delivered a morning and afternoon session and returns to the same force in November to reach as many staff as possible. Men and women of all ages and rank attended, providing a wide spectrum of experience and knowledge - ranging from people who knew nothing at all about it to people who had been through it and ‘come out the other side’. This led to some interesting discussions, some eye-opening moments and a lot of laughs.
Sunderland University was another organisation Kerry visited in September to talk about the menopause. Sunderland University has identified that 40% of their workforce are female and aged between 40 and 55 years old when the menopause is most likely to occur (though it is important to acknowledge the menopause is not exclusive to this age bracket). As an organisation passionate about the wellbeing of their staff they invited Laughology’s Kerry Leigh in to deliver a fun and informative session to raise awareness of the menopause and the perimenopause.
The popularity of the Laughology Menopause Awareness sessions stems from delivering up-to-date information and facilitating fun and empowering discussions around a hitherto taboo subject.
And finally – just in case you missed the Laughology’s article by Stephanie Davies in this month’s Teach Primary magazine – here it is again Can You Create an Atmosphere of Happiness, Wellbeing, Positivity and Aspiration in Schools?
