June is Migraine and Headache Awareness Month

But only in America it seems, was wondering if the various headache groups ever get together to have similar perhaps a headache week once a year in the UK?

Any thoughts anyone for next year? It could centre around an OUCH conference.

Some years ago we did "CHAW" Might be worth doing it again.

I agree, I think an awareness month, or an awareness day (where social media users can share pictures/posters/info) - might be a good way of raising funds in a short space of time too. Does OUCH have a significant date that relates to the organisation?

Arise and be all that you dreamed.

we could set a date to coinside with an ouch conference, ouch could send out a press release to nat papers/tv/radio etc.


a copy on ouch web for members to contact local press radio. [important all have same facts figures. some members may get a chance for short clip on local radio[normally done over the phone]

volunteers to run a small awarness point or set up a leaflet desk at gp centre.


inhouse have an art poster contest.


try and get other agencies to join in/ sponsors etc

just idea's perhaps others may have better idea's?
