June is National Migraine and Headache Awareness Month

San Rafael, CA – May, 2024 – June is National Migraine and Headache Awareness Month (MHAM), an opportunity to raise awareness about headache diseases such as migraine and cluster headache. 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 more than 23 headache advocacy organizations and thought leaders to provide support to people with headache diseases who are often stigmatized and under-served.

This year, MHAM is focused on the theme “Myth Truth Action” to help: end the myths about headache diseases; illuminate the truth of the debilitating symptoms; and create a call to action to improve the lives of people living with these illnesses. To that end, we are pleased to announce an extensive lineup of advocacy programs, including an action campaign, dozens of live and virtual advocacy events and seven observance days. Moreover, patients are sharing their stories, and leading medical experts are imparting their wisdom, to help shine a light on these disabling and often misunderstood diseases.
