Awareness Color for Migraine & Headache Disorders

As of March 2012, we finally have an official color for Migraine and headache disorder awareness!


There is a website dedicated to "Fighting Migraine, cluster headaches and other headache disorders by standing united through awareness to educate, dispel the myths, and lift the stigma." The website is called Fighting Headache Disorders (...through awareness).

The following organizations have endorsed purple as the awareness color for all headache disorders:
Some groups and organizations will be using purple with variations or additions to signify specific headache disorders or subsets of a headache disorder. For example, Catherine Charrett-Dykes has been using a purple ribbon with a red stripe in an awareness campaing for Chronic Migraine on Facebook.

Much thanks to Teri Robert and Ellen Schnakenberg, who have been vital to our continued mission regarding Migraine and headache disorder awareness and advocacy.
