PODCAST: The medicalization of menopause
I reached out to Dr. Roger McFillin, a clinical psychologist. and co-host of the Radically Genuine podcast, after following his posts on Twitter.
(These days, in terms of social media, I am most active on Twitter. Feel free to connect with me there.)
Dr McFillin shares with the world a critical view of the over-medicalization of mental health issues. The Radically Genuine podcast questions areas of mental health, culture, societal norms and what is truly needed to improve the lives of others.
I thought my approach to perimenopause and menopause would offer his listeners a fresh perspective on this natural part of our lifecycles that is increasingly pathologized.
Leading up to the interview, I admit, I was a little nervous. I had never been interviewed about my work by a man, let alone two! Would they connect with what I was saying?
Well, you get to find out!
