Migraine Education Teens

Experiential Migraine Education

Youth Camps

Miles for Migraine Youth Camps are for kids and teens with chronic migraines and their parents. Youth Camps are designed to build community, empower kids with new ways to cope with their illness, and to provide families with the most current medical information.

  • Informative camp leaders who specialize in adolescent headache disorders
  • Fosters new friendships among youth who are often isolated due to their headaches
  • Programs include relaxation, self-regulation, guided imagery, biofeedback, yoga, art sessions, and separate teen and parent discussion groups

The camp is ongoing throughout the year. We hold an education day for families 1-2 times/year, and social events the remainder of the year. Teens not only have the opportunity to interact with others impacted by migraine disease, but also learn about advocacy and how to create more awareness in their communities.

Parents and caregivers who are also impacted by this disease, have the opportunity to learn, feel supported and receive respite care in this ongoing community.

Education Day

Miles for Migraine Education Day was developed to create awareness about migraine and headache disease. This event is about creating community and sharing knowledge for people with migraine and other headache disorders, and for their families and loved ones.

The day is both informational and experiential. Our goal is for the person with headache disease to learn and be supported. Topics cover coping strategies, advocacy, stigma, research, and medical advancements. There is time allotted to join with others in a supportive and safe community.

We invite local doctors and other providers to give lectures and provide an opportunity for open dialogue and experiential participation so that the day is not confined to only lectured information.
