National Migraine and Headache Awareness Month Begins Tomorrow

Break the Silence

Help the National Headache Foundation break the silence for the millions who suffer from Migraine and Headache by sharing your story! June is Migraine and Headache Awareness Month, and this year, the NHF is collecting stories from around the world at the newly launched

Anyone can submit a story through, either through words or video. The goal is to empower Migraine and Headache sufferers by showing them that they are not alone. Not only that, increasing awareness of the disease will lead to further research and treatments.

Join the Social Media Challenge is kicking off National Migraine and Headache Awareness Month with the 2018 #MHAM Social Media Challenge. This year’s theme is “You Are #NotAlone – Partnering for Better Migraine and Headache Care.” 

As in previous years, there are plenty of opportunities to spread awareness through blogging, tweeting, or posting on just about any social media platform. Each morning, we’ll post a new challenge on We’ve streamlined the process to make it easier for everyone.

There are three ways to participate:

  1. Quick and Easy
    Click on the icon for your favorite social media platform to share each day’s post.  A window will pop up, giving you the opportunity to add your own unique comments before posting to your choice of platforms.
  2. A Little Effort
    Write a brief response to the day’s challenge in the comments section at the end of our daily posts. Take minute to tell us what excites you the most about the 2018 #MHAM Social Media Challenge. Just enter your comments below.
  3. A True Challenge
    The more ambitious in our community may choose to write a blog post in response to the Challenge. When it’s published, don’t forget to share the link as a comment to that day’s challenges so we can promote you, too.

It’s all up to you. Participate as much as you want, on as many days as you are able. There’s no penalty for skipping days. Self-care comes FIRST, especially during the 2018 #MHAM Social Media Challenge. If you'd like to receive an email with each day's challenge, you can register for that HERE.
