‘You Are Not Alone’ are a support group consisting of partners across Sunderland who have designed a webpage to get people talking about the Menopause. Menopause will affect 100% of women within their lives. 30% of all women will be going through the menopause at the same time. The group want to empower women to understand that they are in the menopause, be able to self-care and know when to ask for advice and help. No woman should feel alone! Three of the most common symptoms voiced by women is Mood Swings, Low Mood and Brain Fog. These 3 symptoms alone out of the 40+ can make a women feel isolated and afraid.
