Do you have Migraine, Cluster Headache, or another Headache disorder - or care about someone who does? Almost everyone knows someone with a Headache disorder. Whether one or more of these disorders impacts you directly or through people you know, I hope you'll join us this month - Migraine and Headache Awareness Month (MHAM) - in our efforts to raise awareness and improve lives.
One of the most important aspects of MHAM is getting accurate and compelling facts out in view of the general public to dispel myths and misconceptions and to reduce the social stigma associated with Cluster Headache, Migraine, Post-Traumatic Headache, and all other Headache disorders.
Many people are generating creative ways to observe MHAM, and there are some organized efforts that everyone can join.
In previous years, there's been a MHAM Blogging Challenge. It's been great. This year, to involve more people, the Blogging Challenge morphed into the Migraine and Headache Awareness Month Social Media Challenge. I provided a "prompt," which is a fact to be used for each day of the month, and a logo to go with them.
Here's how it works:
- To participate in the Social Media Challenge, you need to use the fact in your blog and /or on one or more other social media platform - Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc., using the hashtag #MHAM.
- You don't have to manage to participate every day to accept the challenge. We know that some of us simply won't feel up to it every day, so participate as much as you can.
- If you use an image, please use the Social Media Challenge logo (without changing it), which you can see here. I'll add it in a few different sizes at the end of this post so you can get it.
You can find all the prompts and more info in my post Migraine and Headache Awareness Month Social Media Challenge.
People are also having great fun changing their Facebook profile and cover images to Awareness Month images. I've created one of each that I'll add below. You're welcome to use them. If you do, please do not make any changes to them.
The month is off to a strong start with bloggers writing about it and people Tweeting and posting on Facebook about it. I hope you'll join us to reach more people and make it even stronger. There are images below for Facebook and for general use. If you have any problems with getting the images, or if you have any questions, please contact me through the email link at the top of the right column of this page.
because a migraine is NOT "just a headache"
