Menopause workshops

Delivering accessible workshops to d/Deaf communities and those who are hard of hearing.

The menopause can be a very complicated, emotional and isolating time in someone’s life. It’s a topic that is rarely discussed or taught and as a result, there’s lots of confusing information about what menopause actually is, what symptoms someone may experience and how to help manage them.

We are happy to announce that we will be working in partnership with My Menopause Centre to deliver free and informative workshops all about the menopause to people who are d/Deaf and hard of hearing in Birmingham.

Each session will be run by certified medical Doctors who will deliver a 20 minute presentation followed by a Q&A. This will be a safe environment, where you can ask sensitive questions and discuss the topic freely without judgement.

British Sign Language (BSL) interpreters are booked for the entire session and you can help yourself to free refreshments.

The next session:

Date: Monday 4th March
Time: 10:30am – 12:30pm
Location: Deaf Cultural Centre, 100 Ladywood Road, Birmingham, B16 8SZ
Topic: Sleep and the menopause

Next dates:

Date: Monday 22nd April
Time: 10:30am – 12:30pm
Topic: Loss of libido and hormonal health


BID Services have been working in collaboration with the University of Wolverhampton to identify the need for better access to medical information (including the menopause) to people who are d/Deaf and hard of hearing. Read the full blog with Sarah Bown.

Please note that the BID Services marketing team will be taking photos and filming during the 20 minute presentation which will be shared on both websites as a permanent resource. To protect people’s privacy, they will not be filming the Q&A part of the session. They may also take photos of the audience to help promote future projects on social media. If you don’t want your photo to be taken, please let our team know.
