About Us

Our Vision

Our vision is to provide free, quality on-demand and live resources to youth in chronic pain, as well as to their caregivers, which will increase their quality of life and decrease their pain. To build a supportive community of youth and their caregivers navigating the difficulties of living with chronic pain across the US, Canada and beyond.

Our Mission

Our mission at Creative Healing for Youth in Pain is to cultivate a supportive online community for youth ages 13-24 and their caregivers while they navigate the challenges of chronic pain. CHYP strives to inspire and empower participants and guide them toward a journey of healing and hope by giving them the tools needed to overcome the obstacles of chronic pain, including creative non-clinical interventions, education and peer support. CHYP aims to provide its participants with community and healing tools without the limitations imposed by geographic location or socioeconomic status.

Our Impact

CHYP is an online nonprofit providing educational resources, peer connection, and creative healing experiences while bridging the gap for common healthcare barriers such as cost, geographic location and long wait times for doctor's appointments.
