We are a support group for people living with chronic pain in the Boston, MA area and surrounding New England area. Our group was founded in April, 2000 and has been meeting continuously year round since then. Once a month, we meet to discuss the challenges of living with chronic pain and offer support to each other. At our meetings, we can also hear updates on research and therapies from physicians and other professionals in the area.
Our mission is to provide a safe place where people with chronic pain can support one another, develop friendships, share ideas and thoughts, obtain information about their condition from professionals and each other, and learn coping skills in a nonjudgmental and caring atmosphere.
Our meetings are free and open to anyone living with chronic pain. We meet at Robbins Library in Arlington, MA on the second Friday of the month, from 11:00am to 12:30pm. When that location is unavailable, we meet at an alternate location in Arlington.
We are affiliated with both the American Chronic Pain Association and the US Pain Foundation, which are national non-profit, organizations that offer educational materials, support groups, and advocacy for people living with pain and their families and caregivers. Our group and these national groups help individuals living with chronic pain find connection, hope and inspiration and are dedicated to raising awareness about issues of living with chronic pain among the healthcare community, policy makers and the public-at-large.
Our Chronic Pain Support Group is run by people with chronic pain who volunteer their services. The group offers encouragement and information.
