Pain Support

Pain Support ACT is a part of Arthritis ACT (also known as Build a Better Me).  We work with people in Canberra and surrounding region who are living chronic pain of any type.  We can also assist their family and carers, with support, information and advocacy.

We provide people living with Chronic Pain conditions with all types of support including lower cost allied health supports, various exercise classes that can assist in managing pain, education seminars, support groups, and individualised one on one support.  We regularly have student counsellors available for free counselling and we have an art therapist on staff who can provide a means of exploring your emotional wellbeing through art.  This is often less confronting for people than simply talking to a counsellor.

Build a Better Me – Arthritis, Pain Support and ME/CFS ACT are all linked services but have separate webpages to assist the community in locating information more readily from search engines.
