The Writing Room: National Chronic Pain Support Group
The Writing Room is a safe space to explore your relationship with chronic pain and illness through various creative writing techniques—no writing experience necessary.
The meeting is hosted by Millie Quiñones-Dunlap, a New York State certified teacher/librarian who is also a writer and spoken word artist. She has been living with chronic pain for sixteen years and uses writing as a way to explore her physical and emotional relationship with chronic pain.
You can contact Millie at email@example.com with any questions.
This meeting will close 10 minutes after it’s scheduled start time.
Pain Connection is a support group program of the U.S. Pain Foundation. All 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.
All discussions in Pain Connection groups are confidential, and designed with your comfort in mind. For example, you should feel free to lie down during groups.
Currently, all groups are meeting via Zoom. To register please fill out the form on this page and an email confirmation will be sent to you with a zoom link.
If you have questions about our support groups, or are interested in starting one in your area, please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org.
