Support Groups

Whether you are someone with health issues, or a person who loves someone with an illness, joining a support group can be beneficial in many ways.

Meeting others in the group who are further in their recovery and who are living happier and healthier lives gives members hope and confidence.

Support groups can bring an overwhelming sense of relief. It can be the very first time in your life that you will meet others that have the same pain, concerns and are there to help and encourage you.

Practical tips and resources are shared and members share their success stories and the strategies that helped them day to day.

Chronic pain has contributes to withdrawal from social situations and support groups provide a safe place to become comfortable around others again.
