In addition to attending a state-based support group, we encourage you to join one of our monthly national Zoom meetings and check out our specialized population groups.

State-Based Peer Support Group Meetings

All Pain Connection support groups leaders have gone through our training program, where they learn to guide productive, compassionate discussions amongst participants. They are also trained in helpful techniques, like meditation, breathing exercises, guided imagery, decision-making models, role-playing, assertiveness skills, and more.

Pain Connection groups are designed with your comfort in mind. Offered online through Zoom meetings, we want you to feel comfortable. For example, you should feel free to lie down during groups.

All discussions in the support groups are confidential. If you have questions about our support groups, or are interested in starting one in your area, please reach out at
