Answer

Answer

Negative anticipation of menopause seems to be associated with elevated rates of depression and physical symptoms of menopause. Educational groups that help women learn what to expect during menopause decrease anxiety, depression, and irritability, both immediately after the group therapy and 1 year later. [56]
