What is MHAM?

June is National Migraine & Headache Awareness Month (#MHAM), and the full headache, migraine and cluster communities are working together for our diseases to be recognized. A disease awareness month plays a vital role in raising public knowledge, addressing stigma and building a stronger community of patient advocates. This website will serve as a central hub of information about MHAM and the activities planned for the month - geared towards those living with headache diseases, their caregivers and the general public. Be sure to check out our blog posts written by advocates. Join us in advocating and spreading awareness! This year’s theme is A New Era of Care. For more information about the latest treatments and therapies, please visit our partner organizations websites, or CHAMP’s treatment page.

MHAM Blog

For the second year in a row, we will feature daily blog posts from the headache disease community. You will have a chance to hear and learn from seasoned advocates and those who are speaking up for the very first time. Sharing your personal story is a great way to become an advocate. Please enjoy the blog entries below. If interested in sharing your own story, find out which CHAMP participants offer those opportunities.
