Our slogan “Let’s get #BeyondSleepy” is a metaphor intended to provoke a discussion or consideration of the many ways that idiopathic hypersomnia and related disorders affect people. We strive to “get beyond” all the life-altering symptoms, including “beyond sleepiness,” “get beyond” the stigma, “get beyond” the lack of understanding, “get beyond” misdiagnosis and length of time to a diagnosis, and “get beyond” off-label treatments.

#BeyondSleepy, beyond sleepy
