Virtual Event! 

The event will last about one hour.

Learn about CHYP’s mission and the community that it builds for youth with chronic pain, anxiety, and feelings of isolation.

Hear from several youth and their parents about how CHYP has affected their lives.
Hear from Dr. Lonnie Zeltzer, CHYP’s founder, and several board members as they share their passion for CHYP.

There are so many more families in need. The teen suicide rate is at an all-time high. We need increased funding to be able to reach more kids and families. Many families can’t afford the type of pain care offered at Academic Hospitals: they live too far, have no or poor health insurance, don’t know how to get good pain care while they go to doctor after doctor, yet their child still suffers. Help us create programs for kids in foster care and other kids who may suffer from abuse, anxiety, depression, OCD, POTS, eating disorders, and other problems. We need your support to broaden CHYP’s reach and help keep CHYP thriving.


  • Creative Healing for Youth in Pain, CHYP, provides guidance to teens and young adults who suffer from chronic pain (stomach pain, pancreatitis, Crohn’s disease, migraines, sickle cell disease, Long-COVID syndrome, headaches, pain from any cause) along with associated symptoms such as depression, anxiety, OCD, POTS, fatigue, and others. 
  • CHYP provides guidance to parents on how to best help their kids.
  • CHYP provides support for both parents and for kids so that they don’t feel alone and know that there is a community out there going through similar experiences.
  • CHYP helps kids feel empowered with tools to bring back a sense of control over their bodies and begin to feel like they can attend school, be with friends, and get their adolescence back, even kids who have been bedridden for a long time previously. 
  • CHYP provides proven creative arts programs that help kids rewire their brain and body’s nervous system to reverse the disruptive effects of central neural pain circuits: it helps kids unstick sticky neural pain loops.

Support CHYP


Help us give families and kids their lives back.  We ask you to do what you can to help these teens and families regain normal healthy lives.  Seeing teens bedridden from pain able to return to school, friends, and go to college is amazing and heart-warming. CHYP helps kids do this.
