Wellbeing Event at Schroders with Dr Michael Craig: Mental wellbeing and hormonal change
October 13, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Corporates are becomingly increasingly aware how important it is to support their female employees. This is about driving female empowerment, equality and fairness and recognising the value that women bring to the workplace and how important it is to retain women in these organisations.
This is particularly pertinent during menopause, as knowledge and understanding grows about this significant stage in women’s lives. Approximately 1 in 4 women suffer from severe symptoms during menopause and it is estimated that up to 1 in 10 leave their jobs as a result.
We are delighted to announce our next talk at Global Asset Manager Schroders on ‘Mental wellbeing and hormonal change’. The menopause and wellbeing programme at Schroders was initiated by their CEO, Peter Harrison, who understands the importance of bringing this topic into focus and how education brings benefits to the organisation and its people.
Consultant Psychiatrist Dr Michael Craig will speak about hormone changes throughout women’s lives. This event offers practical advice on managing the emotional symptoms associated with hormone changes and ways of coping with them. Severity of symptoms vary from person to person, as does the impact these symptoms have on a woman’s working and private life. This event is being hosted to raise awareness of the importance of hormone health and to educate us all on how we can better understand the impact of hormone changes and support each other.
Topics to be covered include:
• The effects of hormones on brain development in utero
• Perinatal and Perimenopausal depression
This talk is for Schroders’ employees who are welcome to invite their partner or spouse to attend.
