What We Offer

CONNECT AND CREATE WITH OTHERS WHO UNDERSTAND

We know life can get very busy, and with pain in the mix… it can add to the chaos and feel overwhelming. While your pain journey is unique, you are not alone. There are a lot of other young people in pain. How great would it be to connect with others who are going through a similar experience? We have seen first-hand how helpful it can be to connect with others who share similar stories. CHYP is a nonprofit that strives to provide creative healing methods, educational resources, and social support for youth with chronic pain and their parents online.

CREATING BONDS GROUPS

CHYP is providing a 6-week, weekly Zoom video chat group for youth with chronic pain, for informational purposes. After completing this cycle, youth have the option to opt-in to CHYP’s monthly CHYPchat Zoom video chat to feel connected to others facing similar challenges who have chronic pain. There will also be the opportunity to join an online messaging support system to stay connected with the community of support.

Email admin@mychyp.org to know when the next cycle is scheduled.

CHYPCHAT

CHYPchats take place over Zoom and are intended to provide a safe space for youth to come together, talk, laugh, hang out, share helpful coping, and express their creativity. Spending time in this space with one another lets young people know that they are not alone and that others understand what they are going through. These free groups take place on the last Tuesday of the month, from 5-6 pm (PST). Email admin@mychyp.org to learn more.
