Migraine Awareness Week

September 6, 2015 - September 12, 2015

Migraine Awareness Week

Many people suffer from migraines, but did you know there is a whole Migraine Awareness Week dedicated to improving understanding of migraines and the effects they have on migraine sufferers?

Migraine Awareness Week

Migraines affect one in seven people in the United Kingdom, that’s over eight million people in the United Kingdom alone. This means that more people suffer from migraines than making it more prevalent than diabetes, epilepsy and asthma combined.  The World Health Organisation recognises migraine as one of the most disabling lifetime conditions yet awareness and understanding is low and people are often accused of shirking work or responsibilities unfairly.

Migraine is a complex neurological disorder with no known cause or cure.  Unfortunately many people will suffer from migraine for years throughout their life negatively impacting upon their work, family and social lives. Huffington post have provided more information about Migraine awareness week.

How Your Business Can Support Migraine Awareness Week

The Migraine Trust provides the following information on their Migraine Awareness Week webpage:

Get involved – we can only raise awareness with your help
Display a poster – click here to either print a poster or request we send you one or more.
Employment awareness – can you use Migraine Awareness Week 2015 as an opportunity to raise awareness and understanding of migraine at your place of work? For example, a message on your intranet or hold a fundraising dress down day to get people talking about migraine. We would love to discuss your ideas – you can contact The Migraine Trust here (select ‘fundraising’).

If you would like to support Migraine Awareness Week through your business, you can talk to Bristol Marketing to find innovative and engaging ways to promote understanding of migraines amongst your staff and customers.

One of our own clients specialises in one form of migraine prevention through colorimetry. The process uses coloured overlays and tinted lenses to prevent the onset of migraines and reduce their effect. Find out more about Simone Viniker Colorimetry here.

If you would like to support Migraine Awareness Week personally, there are many ideas on the Migraine Action support page here.
