Pain UK is aware that members of a support group usually find them very beneficial: sharing their personal experiences and offering one another emotional comfort and moral support. You may also learn some practical advice and tips to help you cope with your situation. Therefore, Pain UK has decided to share details of support groups for people living with pain.
You may find some of these benefits from participating in a support group:
- Feeling less lonely, isolated or judged
- Gaining a sense of empowerment and control
- Improving your coping skills and sense of adjustment
- Talking openly and honestly about your feelings
- Reducing distress, depression, anxiety or fatigue
- Developing a clearer understanding of what to expect with your situation
- Getting practical advice or information about treatment options
- Comparing notes about resources, such as doctors and alternative options
However, please note that Pain UK has no more information about the groups shown below that what is shared with us here. Pain UK has no responsibility for how the meetings are run, what occurs, etc. If you feel it appropriate, you could discuss the support group with your doctor.
