Did you know that today, February 7th, is “Time to Talk” Day?

This year’s “Time to Talk” Day is all about bringing together the right ingredients, to have a conversation about mental health. Whether that’s tea, biscuits and close friends or a room full of people challenging mental health stigma, it is time to get talking!

Migraine can have a huge impact on ones mental health, especially for chronic sufferers. It is a condition which is often misunderstood – well it is time for that to change!

Migraine sufferers are three times more likely to have depression than some one who doesn’t have migraines. The disease also renders those who suffer vulnerable to feeling lonely and/or feeling isolated.

Well guess what? You are not alone! In the U.S., more than 38 million people suffer from migraines and almost half a million people in Ireland, or about 15 per cent of the total population. It is the 6th most disabling illness in the world.

What if there was a free space online where you could join 100,000’s of others who are affected, and learn first-hand from over 30 of the world’s top migraine and headache experts, doctors, specialists, researchers, scientists, geneticists, psychologists, authors, and advocates?

The Migraine World Summit does just that! It is a virtual event you can watch online in the privacy and comfort of your own home. The 2019 event will be held on March 20-28. Discover the best advice and strategies these experts use with their patients to reduce migraine attacks. Everything from the latest treatments to research to having the difficult conversation at work is covered at the Migraine World Summit. 

So many people have found the Summit valuable – why not sign up for free today and see for yourself!

Let’s use today as the starting point to talk about mental health, and continue the conversation. Mental health problems affect one in four of us, yet people are still afraid to talk about it. Time to Talk Day encourages everyone to talk about mental health.
