Menopause Support is a not for profit community interest company and the home of the national #MakeMenopauseMatter campaign, both founded by Diane Danzebrink.
Diane became acutely aware of the woeful lack of education and information about menopause for both the public and health care practitioners as a result of her own dreadful experience following surgery which put her into surgical menopause. Determined to use her experience to lead the call for change to ensure that women of the future would not suffer in the way that she did Diane created the national #MakeMenopauseMatter campaign which calls for mandatory menopause education for doctors, greater menopause awareness and support in the workplace and for menopause to be added to the RSE curriculum in secondary school education.
Menopause Support provides private support via telephone and video consultations and bespoke menopause training and support solutions for businesses and organisations and menopause training days for therapists and well-being professionals. There are lots of free resources available on the website, plus details of the closed Facebook group,
In 2022 Menopause Support partnered with ForMed Films CIC, an award winning animation studio who specialise in storytelling through the patient voice to make animated films for
medical education, to make Cycle of Change, a short film about menopause to educate and raise awareness of the early stages of this major life transition. The aim is to help explain what happens during perimenopause so that men, women and healthcare providers can be better prepared to celebrate and support the one-billion women worldwide going through menopause.
