Northern Ireland Psychology Week: Menopause, the last taboo?

06 October 2017

There will be a free public event taking place on October 11 in Coleraine, as part of the British Psychological Society Northern Ireland Branch (NIBPS)'s Northern Ireland Psychology Week.

Dr Liz Simpson, from the Psychology Research Institute at Ulster University, will be giving an overview of research into menopause, mid-life social change and its impact on health and psychological welfare that has been undertaken in Northern Ireland. 

Menopause is a natural developmental stage in a woman’s life, usually occurring around 51 years of age and represents the permanent cessation of menstruation.

It is a transition, occurring over a number of years and represents the journey from the reproductive years to postmenopausal years, the latter of which makes up about one third of a woman’s life.

This lecture as part of our Northern Ireland Psychology Week, which will see a number of events taking place in Northern Ireland from 9-14 October, details of which can be found on our event listings

It is open to both members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and interested members of the general public and free to attend, although prior registration is required.

More information on 'menopause, the last taboo?', including details on how to register, can be found on its specific event page.
