Support groups

U.S. Pain Foundation believes support groups for people with pain and caregivers are vitally important. Whether taking care of a loved one or dealing with pain, we all need to know we are not alone.

 

 

 

 


U.S. Pain-Affiliated Support Groups

U.S. Pain currently offers numerous in-person and three over-the-phone support groups through its program, Pain Connection.

Conference Call Support Groups

Pain Connection Live Conference Calls are held three times a month:

  • on the first Thursday of each month from 1:30 to 2:30 pm EST
  • on the second Thursday of each month from 7 to 8 pm EST
  • last Saturday of each month from 11 am to noon EST

You must register for each call. Calls will not be taped, and you may just listen – you do not need to talk unless you feel like it. There is no charge for participating, but standard long distance rates apply to the call. View details and instructions.
