Educational resources, social support and YOU!

CHYP’s goal is to help teens alter pain by using the brain to change the brain’s own pain circuits. Science shows that using the brain in creative ways alters pain signals more than most medications. By strengthening the mind/body connection, you can actually teach your brain to turn off your pain signals.
