June 1 is the start of Migraine & Headache Awareness Month. Over 37 million people in the U.S. are diagnosed with migraine. Although 47% of the adult population experience headache annually, these disorders are poorly recognized and inadequately treated. This is why the National Headache Foundation is standing up to “show purple” during awareness month. We challenge everyone else to stand up with us and let others know they are not alone. Let us show that we are unified and strong as we move forward together.
Where anyone who is impacted by a migraine or headache related disorder is challenged to represent their city by submitting a photograph of themselves with the MHAM sign in front of well- known landmarks, favorite hang-out, or favorite place(s) to go when you’re not experiencing headache or migraine.
How to submit your photo:
Email the NHF at firstname.lastname@example.org
Post on the NHF Facebook Page
We’ll be sharing photos on our Facebook page throughout the month and encourage anyone to post their Show Purple | Show Support to our Facebook page. We want to show everyone that we are in this together.
