Chronic Pain Group

Chronic Pain Group

Surviving to Thriving

Learn to better manage chronic pain and live a more fulfilling life!

When: Every Wednesday starting Feb 17th from 11:30 am- 1 pm

Led by: Brionna Alston, MSW Intern

A 6-week support group for navigating life’s challenges with an invisible illness together.

Join chronic pain advocate and Stillpoint intern Brionna Alston on a holistic, therapeutic journey of empowerment and knowledge. In the new program Surviving to Thriving: a Chronic Pain Group, Brionna will teach evidence-based skills for managing chronic pain and provide education on how to navigate life’s challenges with an invisible illness. By providing a safe space and intimate community, this group will lessen feelings of isolation while learning and practicing techniques for living a more fulfilling life with chronic pain.

This group is a free, six-week, 1.5 hour series that focuses on a different topic every week such as self-care and mindfulness. It is open to the public, however, a limited number of spots are available, and registration is required. This group will take place virtually for safety and convenience. Along with presentation materials, optional accompanying online resources and a book list will be available to group members for further education.
