I thought that this last meetup was really productive. I think we are carrying out our idea of providing a place of support and information for those dealing with chronic pain. We hope to see all of you at the August meetup, to be scheduled shortly!
Austin Chronic Pain Meetup is a peer support group for those in the Austin area living with chronic pain.
ACPM provides a way to network with others with chronic pain, share resources, discuss pain related topics, and support one another in a constructive, positive environment.
We may not be able to change the physical realities of life with chronic pain but we can work on improving our quality of life and enjoy spending time with others who are working to do the same.
ACPM holds a regular monthly meeting which includes a group discussion of a topic or issue related to chronic pain, as well as time to talk and enjoy good company and good food in a relaxed, supportive environment. Other meetups are scheduled occasionally and meetup suggestions are always welcome.
We are exclusively a peer to peer support group and as such our meetings are open only to individuals with chronic pain and their guests, and family or friends of individuals with chronic pain. Health care providers and those offering goods or services are not permitted.
