Idiopathic Hypersomnia Day

June 1, 2024 | Houston, Texas


A proclamation is a document noting an official designation at the local, state, or federal government level which helps raise awareness for an issue. The Hypersomnia Foundation is launching the inaugural Idiopathic Hypersomnia Day (This is IH Day) on June 1, 2024 and we need your help requesting proclamations from your city, county, or state.

When and how should I request a proclamation?

What happens when I receive the proclamation?

A hard copy of the proclamation can usually be picked up or mailed to you. In some cases there might be an opportunity for it to be presented in a more formal setting.

  • Take a picture of yourself with the Hypersomnia Foundation t-shirt we send you and the proclamation.
  • If you’re allowed to request a second copy, consider having it mailed to: Hypersomnia Foundation 4514 Chamblee Dunwoody Rd.  #229 Atlanta, GA 30338

Consider reaching out to your local media (TV, newspapers, etc.) to let them know about the Proclamation and how important it is to raise awareness of Idiopathic Hypersomnia.

Promote the Proclamation and share any news stories covering IH Day on social media. 

Please work with your point person from the Hypersomnia Foundation if you need support or have questions about having the proclamation presented to you, if you’d like to contact the media, or if you need additional help drafting social media posts.
