Special Support Available During COVID-19 Pandemic
Living a life with chronic illness unfortunately doesn’t take a break during a pandemic. We can stay socially connected… from a safe distance. Two CHAMP members are offering private support groups via telephone/Zoom with trained support leaders:
Miles for Migraine Community Groups are now offering online support groups at least 5 times per week.
Please consider attending a session or recommending it to anyone you feel could use extra support in these uncertain times. Follow the links to learn about each program and register for a session. No judgment, no obligation and no cost to you. We're in this together.
Living with headache, migraine and cluster diseases can be extremely isolating. Join one of the many online communities and support groups to connect with other people living with headache diseases and their caregivers.
Whether you are reaching out before or after an attack, sharing a healthcare success, or anything in between, talking with others in our community is the best way to feel supported and cared for and to help build connections with others. It is also a great first step towards advocacy and fighting the stigma associated with headache diseases. See below for the many online headache and migraine communities and support groups. There are many variations of our disease, and probably a community group to cover them! Prefer to read about other people’s experiences first? Read the Blogs written by our community members. If you would like to let us know about your community group, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
