    Migraine remained undiagnosed and undertreated in at least 50% of the sufferers, with less than half having even consulted a physician. They had a hard time expressing the severity of their pain to non-sufferers, who often dismissed it as a simple headache.

     

     

    SOLUTION:

    To improve consultation we needed to not only show sufferers that we understood their pain, but to also give it legitimacy. We used a highly sensorial and descriptive idea: migraine metaphors. We created a series of posters, each conveying a different metaphor, placed in public areas such as transport terminals and in the hospital itself. By using metaphors, sufferers could recognize we understood them; while non-sufferers could get a sense of the agony of the sufferers’ pain in terms they could relate to, thereby reducing stigma.

     

     

    RESULTS:

    Since the posters were put up, the hospital has seen a 50% increase in inquiries and consultation regarding migraines resulting in proper diagnosis and treatment.
