Migraine Awareness Week 2016

           

The World Health Organisation ranks migraine as the 6th highest cause worldwide of years lost due to disability! With over 8 million people in the UK, both young and old, living with migraine, we are striving this Migraine Awareness Week to ensure that the 1 in 7 affected receive the help they need and deserve. 

Will you help us to support the 1 in 7 affected by migraine?

We need your help to reach as many people as possible this Migraine Awareness Week to highlight the debilitating affects migraine can have and help those affected take control.

There are lots of ways you can get involved!

Migraine Art Collection

We hold one of the few migraine art collections in the world. The collection, which includes over 500 pieces, contains a huge variety of expressions of what it means to experience life with migraine. The artists come from every walk of life, and include works by both adults and children. The collection includes depictions on a variety of subjects, from visual patterns experienced by those with visual aura, to the pain aspects of what a migraine really feels like. Now for the first time, thanks to the fantastic support of University of Leicester and Dr Katherine Foxhall, Migraine Action’s Art Collection will be freely available for all to access and use.

The art collection is now available to view online for free! Explore the site now by visiting www.migraineart.org.uk

Some 25 million working- or school-days are lost every year because of migraine! Yet many do not receive effective care - in the UK only half of those identified with migraine had seen a doctor for headache-related reasons in the previous 12 months, and only two-thirds had been correctly diagnosed. 

Together we can help all those affected to take control
