Coming Fall 2019!

Pain Support and Wellness Groups are the latest addition to Pain BC’s programs for people in pain. The in-person groups will offer an opportunity for people living with persistent pain to meet regularly and build a community of support while learning about pain, pain management and coping strategies.

Groups will meet every 2 weeks with alternating mid-day and evening sessions. Each 2-hour session will allow participants to share their experiences, discuss self-management skills and take part in gentle movement exercises as a group.
