What we're about

This is a virtual chronic pain support group that focuses on helping each other learn new skills for managing our pain in our everyday life. Currently, this group is focused on individuals in the United States.

Mara is a Facilitator through the American Chronic Pain Association. This support group follows their guidelines and focuses on a Patient's Basic Rights (https://www.theacpa.org/pain-management-tools/basic-rights/), the 10 Steps From Patient to Person (https://www.theacpa.org/pain-management-tools/from-patient-to-person/), and Coping Skills (https://www.theacpa.org/pain-management-tools/self-management-skills/).

We also comply with the American Chronic Pain Associations Do's and Don'ts (https://www.askmara.com/dosanddonts.pdf) & Principles! (https://www.askmara.com/acpaguidelines.pdf)

We begin each meeting with the Facilitator briefly discussing a "pain" topic and reviewing the current Coping Calendar. We then go onto sharing. The ACPA also prints a Newsletter several times per year. If you are interested, you can read these Chronicles online. (https://theacpa.org/Chronicle)

Hope to see you there!
