One of Migraine Canada’s goals is to provide support to those with migraine by sharing information and combating stigma. One of the ways to accomplish this goal is by amplifying the voices of the migraine community to provide insight into what living with migraine is truly like.

Over the past few months, Migraine Canada has been planning a new project: a series of articles detailing the experiences of those with migraine. The project is led by volunteer and migraine advocate Rachel Jing-Lin Lu.

We believe that this project, which we are calling Your Voice, can combat the stigma surrounding migraine as well as remind people that they are not alone in their struggles. While finding a supportive community has been made easier with the development of social platforms, it can still be difficult to know where to look. We believe that this project will raise awareness and serve as a starting point in securing a necessary support system. 

The articles in Your Voice will be a collection of personal experiences from different individuals. Using our platform to share these stories will bring attention to the large community of people living with migraine and provide important perspectives on this potentially disabling condition.

We would like to invite you to share your experiences with us! We are looking to focus on how migraine has impacted your interpersonal relationships (spouse, friends, parents, children etc.) and employment. If you are interested in contributing to these articles, please fill out this google form. You may be contacted for an interview later. 

Thank you! Please email interviews@migrainecanada.org if you have questions!
