Please consider making a donation to the Hypersomnia Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, to help us increase awareness of hypersomnias. One of the ways we do this is by sending out these free informational brochures to doctors’ offices and other medical venues, so that more people learn about IH and related disorders. Just $30 helps us provide 25 free brochures. Thank you for supporting the Hypersomnia Foundation!

Order Printed Materials

Brochures, Brochure Inserts, and Medical Alert Cards should be ordered only by the person or organization who will be distributing them. For example, rather than ordering them for your healthcare provider’s office, please encourage your healthcare provider to order them directly from us here. They are free of charge, but please help us continue to be good stewards of our funds by limiting your order to the number you expect to distribute within six months. You can also email to request that we send your healthcare provider a sample brochure and introductory information about the HF. Thank you for supporting the Hypersomnia Foundation.
