Periods, Menopause & ​Mental Health

Period & Pause is a community interest company dedicated to raising ​awareness in schools, local communities and the workplace.

Our mission is to empower individuals through tailored workshops ​and talks, providing the knowledge necessary for better menstrual, ​menopausal, mental health & wellbeing.

Let's get started!

Schools & Youth Centre Workshops

We deliver friendly & accessible menstrual & mental health awar​eness workshops to local youth clubs and secondary schools in Ca​mden, London.

Since Septem​b​er 2020, menstrual health and wellbeing has become an extended pa​rt of the national curriculum and is a statutory requirement for se​condary schools.

O​u​r up to date tools and insights help nurture resilience and confidence. We​ help Children and teenagers to feel at ease with themselves, un​derstand their minds and bodies. Understand how and when to ac​cess healthcare, and manage menstrual & mental health adversities.

W​e​ provide a safe space led by independent facilitators to share ex​periences, gain knowledge and challenge misconceptions about pe​riods, mental health and the menopause.

"Period & Pause delivered great workshops on menstrual & mental health for our Year 8 students. Their engaging and ​informative sessions created a comfortable space for open discussions, empowering our students with essential knowledge ​and fostering a supportive environment. The hands-on experience with various period products was a highlight, promoting ​confidence and preparedness. We're grateful for the partnership with Period and Pause, contributing significantly to the ​empowerment and wellbeing education of our students”.

"At TechSwitch, we are committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive environment within the tech industry. Our partnership with Period & Pause demonstrates our commitment to addressing the often-overlooked challenges of menopause in the workplace. Many of our TechSwitchers are women returners and the expertise that Period & Pause bring to the table helps us to better support them, both during the bootcamp and during their placements with our hiring partners. By acknowledging and raising awareness about menopause, together we want to create an empowered workforce where everyone’s experiences are valued and respected”

Why Period & Pause?

2 in 10 women experience a menstrual health disorder such as ​endometriosis, polycystic ovaries syndrome, adenomyosis and fibroids. ​More than 50% of women experience debilitating peri-menopause, ​menopause & post-menopausal symptoms. The majority of these ​women’s mental health will be impacted as a subsequence of ​experiencing these menstrual health issues.

We want to help you retain valuable staff and embed an inclusive, ​friendly workplace culture that supports and nourishes staff members.

Evidence shows that many women are reducing their hours or leaving ​work altogether due to their perimenopausal and menopausal ​symptoms. Our menstrual and menopause awareness training helps ​break taboos and create transparent, healthy work environments where ​everybody can thrive.
