Migraine Action Association
What is the Migraine Action Association?
In 1958 the late Peter Wilson became concerned that migraine sufferers
were not receiving the support they deserved or the treatment that
they needed. He organised a meeting of a small group of migraine
sufferers in a private house in Bournemouth and from that humble
beginning the British Migraine Association was formed.
The Association is now a registered charity with over 17,000 members
and in November 1997 the name was changed to the Migraine Action
Association as this was felt to better embody its aims and functions.
The Association has 3 main aims:
1. To encourage and support research and investigation into migraine,
its causes, diagnosis, prevention and treatment.
2. To gather and pass on information about treatments available
for the control and relief of migraine and to facilitate an exchange
of information on the subject.
3. To provide friendly, positive reassurance, understanding and
encouragement to migraine sufferers and their families.
The Association bridges the gap between the migraine sufferer
and the medical world.
Our support and information service includes:
- A telephone helpline
- A website
- A postal information service
- A 28 page newsletter 4 times a year
- Numerous leaflets on all aspects of migraine
The Association is committed to raising general awareness of the
condition and is a recognised source of information for the media.
Our leaflets and newsletters are distributed to clinics, hospitals,
libraries, doctors' surgeries and the media throughout the country.
Members participate in research and product trials and also collect
and donate considerable sums of money to support migraine clinics
and further research
