What is MHAM?

June is National Migraine & Headache Awareness Month (#MHAM).

The headache, migraine and cluster communities work together for our diseases to be recognized. A disease awareness month plays a vital role to raise public knowledge, address stigma and build a stronger community of patient advocates. This website is a central hub about MHAM and the activities planned for the month — geared toward those living with headache diseases, their caregivers and the general public. Check out our blog posts written by advocates. Join us in advocating and spreading awareness!

Read and learn from seasoned advocates and those who are speaking up for the first time. Sharing your personal story is a great way to become an advocate. If interested in sharing your own story, find out which CHAMP participants offer those opportunities.
