June is National Migraine and Headache Awareness Month
San Rafael, CA – May, 2023 – June is National Migraine and Headache Awareness Month (MHAM), an opportunity to raise awareness about migraine, cluster, and other headache diseases. Migraine impacts more than forty-two million people in the United States and currently about half of the people with migraine are undiagnosed. Approximately 400,000 Americans experience cluster headaches, recognized as one of the most painful diseases a person can have.
The Coalition for Headache and Migraine Patients (CHAMP) is a national nonprofit that brings together 20 headache advocacy organizations and thought leaders to provide support to people with headache, migraine, and cluster diseases who are often stigmatized and under-served.
This year, MHAM is focused on the theme “Educate Yourself, Educate Others” to help spread awareness about migraine and other headache diseases. To that end, we are pleased to announce an extensive lineup of advocacy programs, including a blog initiative, dozens of live and virtual advocacy events, and seven observance days. Moreover, patients are sharing their migraine and headache stories, and leading medical experts are imparting their wisdom, to help shine a light on this disabling and often misunderstood disease.
