Addressing Obstacles for Working Migraineurs in the UK

In response to Headache UK‘s study findings that one in four people keep their headaches a secret to avoid discrimination at work (Hidden Headaches in the UK), The Migraine Trust will launch a yearlong effort to expose the difficulties that migraineurs face at work. The campaign, which will begin during the UK’s Migraine Awareness Week (Sept. 4-10), will include collaboration with government, publication of a fact sheet on working with migraine and recognition of employers who address the needs of migraine sufferers.

A successful campaign could be a step toward awareness in the rest of the world, too.
