Support groups

At U.S. Pain Foundation, we strongly believe in the importance of peer support and connecting with others who understand. That’s why we have partnered with Pain Connection to offer an ever-expanding network of support groups that are available via phone or in person. Each group within this network is led by an individual who has been specially trained by Gwenn Herman, LCSW, DCSW, a person with pain and Clinical Director of Pain Connection, to offer the most helpful, empathetic, patient-centered peer support possible.

While we encourage you to check out our U.S. Pain Foundation/Pain Connection support groups, the directory below includes general support groups and online groups as well.
